A new study showed promising results, that strawberries could stop the spread of breast cancer.
“These results are without a doubt valid for understanding potential effects of strawberries on breast cancer and the molecular mechanisms involved,” said study author Maurizio Battino, in a press release. “But they must be complemented with clinical and epidemiological studies to verify whether humans experience the same positive effects as we have observed in mice.”
It seems that particular strawberries that are high in concentration of phenolic compounds, are what is responsible for the beneficial health effects. For the study, they used the Alba variety of strawberry, found in Italy.
Looks like it may be time to drink some more Strawberry Margaritas ladies.
