    Hi Rhonda. Many thanks for such an interesting overview. Sulforaphane and subsequent activation of the NRF2 pathway sounds like a silver bullet. However, are there possible downsides with NRF2 activation? There seems to be some suggestions that if activation of NRF2 protects normal cells under stress, it could do the same for cancer cells and make cancer therapies such as chemotherapy less effective. If NRF2 is cell protective, could it slow down autophagy which I understand is also such an important component of long-term health? Love to hear your views on this too.
