Don't save your cranberries for the holidays. A regular dose of that on the menu could be just what the doctor ordered.
A new study has found a compound in cranberries that inhibited the growth of lung cancer, colon cancer and leukemia cells but did not appear to harm healthy cells. The compound also appears to shut down an enzyme that causes cancer cells to break apart and spread around the body. Researchers at the University of Massachusetts say the cranberry studies continue. In the meantime, why not enjoy them all year long.
