Vegetables with the highest source of nutrients

Vegetables with the highest source of nutrients include cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, and kale. All these vegetables are high on the ORAC (oxygen radical absorbency capacity) scale, which measures a food's overall antioxidant capacity. Developed by Dr Guohua Cao, a food scientist at the USDA, the systems greatest advantage is that for any food the synergistic effects of many antioxidants are taken into account--factors that would be easily overlooked in attempting to evaluate the effects of each antioxidant, and then merely adding the results together.

These nutrient-dense plants play the greatest role in preventing disease.
