Benefits of Cranberry Juice

Adding cranberries to your diet could help you avoid tummy trouble.

That's according to scientists who spoke at a meeting of the American Society for Microbiology. They told the group that in lab studies, they've seen virus activity stop when it was exposed to cranberry juice and that the pigments in cranberries actually helped prevent bacteria from binding to cells in the body.

So far, that's just in a petrie dish, but researchers say they're anxious to try the cranberry test on gastrointestinal viruses in humans.
