Is cranberry juice is better than cranberry extracts at fighting bacterial infections?
A new study from researchers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute says juice is better. But is that really the right question, in the first place?
As Steve Milloy pointed out in his November 2006 FoxNews.com column, “Cranberry Health Claims: A Thanksgiving Turkey?“:
Let’s consume cranberry products and dishes because they’re tasty – not because they’ve been prematurely proclaimed as being a dietary magic bullet that will prevent cancer, heart disease, ulcers, urinary tract infections and, of course, dreaded dental plaque. Unlike the science, taste is something that cranberries actually have going for them.
There is no magical food for keeping you healthy.
