The effects of dietary broccoli on the body's ability to detoxify were studied in 18 male subjects between the ages of 22-40 years. The biological parameters used for measuring detoxification were the four major urinary conjugates, namely, mercapturates, sulfoconjugates, glucuronides, and amino acid conjugates. Dietary broccoli increased the urinary excretion of mercapturates and sulfoconjugates, but did not influence the excretion of glucuronides and amino acid conjugates. A significant linear trend was observed over the six-day broccoli diet treatment for both urinary mercapturate (P
