Strawberries Shown to Inhibit Cancerous Tumor Growth

Researchers said that earlier lab experiments found strawberries inhibited cancerous tumors and pre-cancerous cell abnormalities in the esophagus. According to doctors, one-quarter of those with low-grade abnormalities and one-half of those with high-grade abnormalities will develop esophageal cancer. In this study, 36 people with low- or high-grade cell abnormalities took 60 grams of freeze-dried strawberries per day, equal to about 21 oz of fresh fruit. After six months, the severity of abnormalities decreased in 84 percent of low-grade and in 66 percent of the high-grade group, reducing chances for cancer of the esophagus, scientists said.
