According to Wikipedia,

Broccoli is high in vitamin C and dietary fiber.  It also contains multiple nutrients with potent anti-cancer properties, such as diindolylmethane and small amounts of selenium.  A single serving provides more than 30 mg of vitamin C and a half-cup provides 52 mg of vitamin C.
