The Food Guys: Cranberry Juice Useful
for Cocktails and Antibiotic Health
Findings, based on a study conducted at Worcester Polytechnic Institute,
suggest that substances in cranberry juice may combat E. coli bacteria, which are responsible for disorders such as kidney
infections, gastroenteritis and tooth decay.
So, wash down your buttered spinach with a lot of cranberry juice. Better yet, swig the juice before having lettuce.
According to the study’s primary investigators, tannins called proanthocyanidins contained in cranberry juice prevent
bacteria from adhering to cells.
