The objective of this research is to collaborate to characterize the biological response of cancer biomarkers to dietary exposure of plant foods, including Brassica vegetables, blackberries, and garlic in humans.
Human intervention studies will be conducted with naturally occurring constituents of or the test food or component, including fruits, vegetables, and edible plant materials (e.g., spinach, kale, other Brassica vegetables). Outcomes will include biomarkers of cancer risk.
