Indole-3-carbinol (I3C) and diindolylmethane (DIM) are two of my favorite plant chemicals for preventing and treating breast cancer. Both are obtained from broccoli, cabbage and Brussels sprouts; however, there is controversy as to which supplemental form is best. I use a supplement containing both I3C and DIM to avoid this conflict. Both compounds have also been shown to prevent prostate cancer and may help prevent uterine fibroids. Incidently, I also use this supplement as part of a treatment for cervical dysplasia-Dr. LeRoy
