There is increasing support from researchers about the benefits of cranberries in preventing and halting cancers. Researchers in Canada have found that high levels of flavonoids in cranberries may slow or stop the growth of breast cancers. Flavonoids are also capable of destroying cancer cells in estrogen dependent cancers. Flavonoids are also believed to prevent prostate, colon, lung and brain cancer. Thus, a diet rich in cranberries may be beneficial in fighting cancer. Considering 215,990 new cases of breast cancer and 40,110 deaths from it are expected in the US in 2004, it is worth considering the potential of flavonoids. Furthermore, cranberries are known to prevent urinary tract infections, gum disease and stomach ulcers.
