Broccoli may help boost the aging immune system

There are 2 comments on the EMaxHealth story from Mar 6, 2008, titled Broccoli may help boost the aging immune system. In it, EMaxHealth reports that:

“Our defense against oxidative stress damage may determine at what rate we age, how it will manifest and how to interfere in those processes”

Eat your broccoli. That's the advice from UCLA researchers who have found that a chemical in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables may hold a key to restoring the body's immunity, which declines as we age. via EMaxHealth

Where did UCLA and those "researchers" find their grant funds--I'd like to try the source. This is certainly not new information. In the late 1980s cruciferous vegetables were known to restore and enhance the immune system, with cancer prevention at the helm.

Taking supplements and vitamins that boosts your immune system is also one alternative. Recently found this product on amazon called instant immunity. Been taking because everyone I was working with got sick and I made it out OK. Recommend it.
