Strawberries May Help Prevent Esophageal Cancer

freeze-dried strawberries…. delicious & nutritious

 

Excuse me but did I just hear you say that eating strawberries could actually help prevent against esophageal cancer?  Really?!?! 

 

According to new preliminary research, the answer is YES, eating strawberries in the freeze-dried form can help prevent against the 6th most deadliest cancer, esophageal cancer.  An initial study was done where patients with pre-cancerous esophageal lesions ate 1 ounce of freeze-dried strawberries 2x a day for 6 months.  80% saw a decrease in the size of these lesions.  In a freeze-dried form, strawberries offer 10x the concentration of natural disease fighters like vitamins A & C and flavinoid, a natural anti-inflammatory.  This novel approach to fighting cancer sure seems easy.

Although this is a promising development in the effects of nutrition & cancer prevention, more studies need to be done before this link can be made.  But if you know someone who has pre-cancerous esophageal lesions or has a family history of esophageal cancer, pass this on.  It can’t hurt and it might just help. BTW, Alan LOVED strawberries… & nectarines too! For more information, check out an article on ABC News/Health.
