Research shows health benefits of cranberries

Cranberries are full of antioxidants, can cut bad cholesterol and fight infections MSNBC 11/20/06 "A compound Howell discovered in cranberries, proanthocyanidine, prevents plaque formation on teeth; mouthwashes containing it are being developed to prevent periodontal disease...can kill the H. pylori bacteria, which can cause stomach cancer and ulcers...may increase levels of HDL, or good cholesterol and reduce levels of LDL...may prevent tumors from growing rapidly or starting in the first place...can block urinary infections by binding to bacteria so they can’t adhere to cell walls"

I really don't like cranberries, but with so much promise maybe I'll give them another try this T-day.
