One-half cup of radishes contains 1 g of fiber, and while that may not seem like a lot it is actually 4 percent of the recommended daily intake, according to the CDC. If you slice radishes and eat them with a green salad, you are taking in additional fiber. A report from the Harvard School of Public Health states that adding fiber to your diet lowers your risk of diabetes, heart disease, diverticulitis and colon cancer.
Radishes contain a group of compounds called isothiocyanates, which are shown to be effective against certain cancers. Snacking on radishes can help you reach your daily vitamin C intake goal. For their size, radishes have a high vitamin C content. A 1/2-cup serving offers 8.6 mg, or 14 percent of the recommended daily intake. Vitamin C works in the body to rebuild tissues, blood vessels and maintain bones and teeth.
