London: Scientists have discovered that eating broccoli, packed with a health-boosting compound called `glucoraphanin`, helps maintain cellular processes that can cause deadly conditions like obesity and some cancers.

Researchers at the Institute of Food Research in Norwich created the super-strength variety called Beneforte in 2010.

However, after further research it was found that the vegetable works to fight major diseases by helping people`s metabolism work well, the Daily Express reported.

The study is published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
