The BBC reports that scientists at the Institute of Food Research are working on the creation of a new breed of super broccoli that will have more of a key chemical – sulforaphane – that helps give the vegetable cancer-fighting properties.

The goal of the research is to help people who genetically cannot absorb normal amounts of sulforaphane into their bodies, though there doesn’t seem to be any reason that normal people also couldn’t eat the super broccoli.

It is expected to take three years to get the new broccoli on the market.
