Default Is it Best to Juice Non-Cruciferous Vegetables

Since Cruciferous vegetables are difficult for humans to breakdown and digest?

Fermented and steamed are very, very beneficial.

Raw ones are bad for your thyroid. Goitrogens.

I read that iodine deficiency makes goitrogens a health hazard. The info said if a person is not iodine deficient, raw cruciferous is safe in moderation (four servings a week being considered moderate).
