Comments

– Cabbage is used in natural medicine mainly in the form of poultices, for external use. It is also increasingly used in juice form (such as in green juice) to aid weight loss.

– Kale is a very healthy vegetable, rich mainly in vitamin C and sulfur, in addition to having a very high nutritional value. During World War II kale was an important food source for the Americans and the British. Cabbages were even grown in public parks to contribute to the war effort, such as in the White House gardens under the command of the first lady at the time, Eleanor Roosevelt.
