Research volunteers were fed either one or two pounds of cruciferous (cabbage family) vegetables daily for two weeks. The effect of this on systemic inflammation markers was measured. One out of four inflammation markers was reduced, but only in those consuming the two pound dose. Because the cabbage family contains a natural toxin to the thyroid, consuming this amount of cruciferous vegetables on an ongoing basis could damage thyroid function, especially without consuming adequate amounts of iodine (such as iodized salt).
