For many years now, cabbage juice has been implicated in the treating of peptic ulcers. In 1949, Garnett Cheney published a paper showing that the average recovery time from duodenal ulcer was 10.4 days when the patients were treated with cabbage juice. In contrast, those patients receiving conventional treatment took 37 days to recover.
In the paper, Garnett also showed that patients with gastic ulcers healed in only 7.3 days compared to the 43 days that it was taking patients to heal on the standard treatment.
