I read that broccoli sprouts are 10 times more healthful than the larger full grown plant. Is this true?

According to the John Hopkins Medical Institute, three day old broccoli sprouts contain 20-50 times the cancer preventing agents found in mature broccoli heads. They reportedly taste nothing like broccoli, but more like "sprouts". Sounds like broccoli sprouts are destined to become really popular.
