Strawberries against Cancer

10 04 2011

Who doesn’t like strawberries? With ice cream, in a cake or even simple with some sugar…

A new study suggest that this delicious fruit might also be able to fight cancer.

Researchers from Ohio State University found that people who eat strawberries (freeze-dried), for at least six months, have shown that the growth of dysplastic or precancerous lesions has slowed down.

This study was about esophageal cancer which is the sixth most common type of cancer death in the world. It was applied in China, for six months, where patients consumed 30 gr of freeze-dried strawberries (dissolved in a glass of water) twice a day.

One important and relevant fact is that this kind of strawberries are about ten times more concentrated than fresh ones. However these researchers say that people could still get health benefits from eating fresh strawberries everyday…

Besides these study results, they weren’t able to say exactly what is in this fruit that can battle cancer cells.


We all know that fruit is one of best things to eat, so why don’t eat delicious strawberries?

perhaps the studies was not completed, that’s why researchers have not found exactly which nutrient in the composition of strawberries helps prevent colon cancer. but we suppose these are the pigments (lycopene – a type of carotene), which exist in many anti-cancer products. Even if not, we still like strawberries and wont stop eating it because it’s a pleasure.

Yes, that’s true, if you see the original study they say that this anti-cancer effect it’s most likely due to lycopene. They are still studying this effects, not to be exactly sure about which component is the reason, but mainly because they want to know exactly the effects of eating fresh strawberries everyday.
That’s right, I think most people like strawberries and this is just one more reason to eat them.
Thank you for your comment.
