The super powerful vegetables are the cruciferous ones and they include kale, cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprout, cauliflower, collard greens, bok choy, and several others.  These vegetables have the highest concentrations of antioxidants and in research studies they have shown to have anti-cancer properties.
