For those who would like to defend against cancer, inflammation and diabetes, strawberries are a great choice. A study in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry discovered strawberry extract decreased proliferation of both colon (HT29) and breast (MCF-7) cancer cells. Inhibition of HT29 cells was 53 percent while MCF-7 cells averaged 43 percent. Researchers believe abundant phytonutrients, ellagic acid and ellagitannins present in the fruit are responsible for the findings. Organic strawberries had higher anti-carcinogenic characteristics than conventional varieties.
