BROCCOLI

The average person in the United States eats four and a half pounds of broccoli a year.

Late on Christmas eve or early on Christmas day 2006 in the Chicago suburb of Villa Park, thieves stole a tractor trailer filled with broccoli that was valued at $50,000.

Research in 2007 showed that broccoli may prevent an inherited skin disorder in mice.
