December 20, 2006 1:41pm CST
Did you know that strawberries may help prevent certain types of cancer. Strawberries are high in ellagic acid, which is a potent phytochemical,as well as the flavonoids anthocyanin, catechin, quercetin and kaempferol. These compounds have potent antioxidant power. Also individual compounds in strawberries have demonstrated anticancer activity in several systems, blocking initiation of carcinogenesis and suppressing progression and proliferation of tumors. Does anybody have any favorite strawberry recipes or is there another food or illness you would like to know more about? Note: The information given is not to be used in place of medical advice.
