Black Raspberries—Cancer Preventives?


Researchers at Ohio State University recently studied the effects of black raspberry extract on mice who had tumors of the esophagus. The mice were fed a diet that was five percent black raspberry extract. At the end of the study, which lasted 25 weeks, the mice who were given the black raspberry extract had about half as many tumors as mice who did not receive the extract.

The researchers are not sure what mechanism is at work in this tumor-suppressing activity. But there’s no harm in eating plenty of black raspberries when they’re in season this summer.
