when you cook do you lose phtochemicals

Some phytochemicals may be lost to some degree if the food is cooked at a high temperature for a prolonged amount of time.  However, most of the phytochemicals are heat stable and will not be significantly decreased if the vegetable is cooked.  Try cooking your vegetables in a minimal amount of water and avoid high temperatures.
