The next move is to clinically assess the manner in which humans suffering from IBD & other digestive issues can reap advantages of a diet excessively rich in broccoli and blueberries, as stated by the Plant and Food Research scientist, Dr. Gunaranjan Paturi.

Dr. Gunaranjan Paturi, said " there is an intensely progressing body of confirmations which can effectively suggest that the said compounds available in vegetables and fruit can end up providing immensely beneficial consequences to gastrointestinal health."

Dr. Paturi further said, “In the mice we have seen these changes, so it is a possibility that in the humans there might be an effect. So, there should be some clinical trials that should look forward & see how this really changes in humans”.

However, it has been claimed that no human clinical assessment are scheduled at this phase since funding constraints was a bigger issue.

Dr. Paturi added that the two foods were made to go through a trial since there were a handful of commercial interests in relation to them, and since both broccoli & blueberries were extensively used by Kiwis already.
