Fruits that prevent cancer: Some hope for a healthier life

I have some interesting information to share with you. A study was conducted to determine the effects of 11 of the most commonly eaten fruits in the United States on liver cancer cell proliferation. The study found that water had no effect on the cancer cells, as they continued to grow at 100% even when water was dripped on them. Pineapples, pears, and oranges were also found to be ineffective in reducing cancer cell growth. Peaches showed some promise, as high concentrations of peaches resulted in a 10% drop in cancer cell proliferation. 

However, the real winners were bananas, grapefruits, red grapes, strawberries, apples, lemons, and cranberries. At high concentrations, bananas and grapefruits were found to reduce cancer cell growth rates by 40%, while red grapes, strawberries, and apples cut cancer cell growth by up to 50%. 

Interestingly, lemons and cranberries were the most effective in suppressing liver cancer cell proliferation, even at tiny doses. Therefore, when it comes to reducing cancer cell growth, apples are more powerful than bananas, but cranberries and lemon are the most effective. On the other hand, orange, pear, and pineapple were found to have no effect on liver cancer cell growth.

So when life gives you lemons... make cranberry lemonaid! Minus the added sugar of course!
