My immune system is currently supressed (I'm undergoing chemotherapy for 
breast cancer) and have been told to wash sprouts VERY well before eating 
them.  That advice came from the medical community and may or may not be 
grounded in research. 
We really like Broccosprouts but since they are so tiny and such a pain to 
wash well, I  just don't eat them right now.
