Cabbage is part of the Brassicaceae family of vegetables. Also called cruciferous vegetables, other close cousins are broccoli, Brussels sprouts, collards, cauliflower and kale.
Researchers reviewed 94 studies concerning the relationship between Brassica vegetables and cancer and found in 67 percent of the case control studies, eating these vegetables was associated with a reduced risk of cancer. In 70 percent of the studies, cabbage consumption was associated with a lower risk of cancer, especially of the lung, stomach and colon.
How many servings of cruciferous vegetables do you need to lower your risk of cancer? According to the Worlds Healthiest Foods website, just three to five one cup servings each week will help lower risks.

Cabbage is an excellent source of vitamins K and C. A one cup serving of shredded, boiled cabbage contains 91 percent of the RDA for vitamin K and 50 percent for vitamin C.
