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.
