London: Scientists have revealed that eating broccoli could help you avoid suffering the most common form of arthritis- osteoarthritis.

Researchers at the University of East Anglia have discovered that a compound sulforaphane, found mainly in the vegetable, slows down the destruction of cartilage in joints linked with osteoarthritis, the Mirror reported.

The study found that the vegetable might have health benefits for people with osteo arthritis and even protect them from developing the disease.
