Cabbage, whether it is a green cabbage or red cabbage, is a good supplier of calcium, vitamins A, C, and K, and potassium. However, overeating cabbage can cause problems such as flatulence and diarrhea. Many scientists are also worried that cabbage contains an indestructible insect that causes significant health problems in consumers.

Cabbage can be harmful to individuals with an over or underactive thyroid. Plants in the cruciferous and brassica family contain goitrogens which can result in the development of goiters if too much is consumed and impair thyroid function even more. Goitrogens can inhibit iodine uptake into the thyroid gland, which is crucially needed for the production of thyroid hormones. For individuals suffering from over or underactive thyroid, it is beneficial to cook, boil or steam cabbage as goitrogens are water soluble and will break down when cooked. Cabbage does contain so many beneficial nutrients. The best way to keep as many nutrients in cooked cabbage is to either steam it or to consume the cabbage in a soup or stew where the liquid the cabbage was cooked in is also consumed.
