yes. that makes me break out too. I dont do fish or cod liver oil anymore. only from natural fish when I eat it.

I just wanted to bump this thread and say that I've been eating a huge bowl of broccolli once a day (for muscle growth) for the past few weeks and I've been breaking out like crazy.

Hi, just wanted to update anyone that follows this thread. I can't say for sure it was broccoli that broke me out anymore. The reason is because there are so many dietary factors in acne (PUFA intake, vitamin D, phytoestrogens, goitrogens, fiber, sugar, dairy, gluten, etc) that its hard for me to pinpoint that it was exactly broccoli. I still avoid it. But the reason why I connected it to my breakouts is because soy and flax always broke me out, I know this for a fact, but I could never pinpoint it to the fact that it is GMO, or has high Omega 6 content, or because it has alot of phytoestrogens, or because it is goitrogenic. I wouldn't touch soy or flax with a ten foot pole. The best way to gauge whether you breakout from broccoli would be to eliminate it from your diet without any other changes (i know its hard) and then reintroduce it after about 2 weeks in large amounts and wait. I didn't do this. I realize thats really unscientific to claim that Broccoli Broke Me Out and I shouldn't have jumped to that conclusion yet, whether it is good or bad.
