It is now a widely held notion that the level of protection lent by intake of cruciferous vegetables seems to be highly linked with an individual’s genotype, specifically of the glutathione transferase gene (Lin et al. 2009). Approximately 50% of the population, regardless of race, has a deletion within this gene. These “nulls” appear to have less benefit in terms of cancer protection with the inclusion of isothiocyanate-producing vegetables, when compared to those in the population that carry the gene.
