Cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide. Inflammation, one of the major pathological processes, causes cell mutation and proliferation. However, a single fruit can stop this process.
Despite gradual progress in cancer prevention, the decline in mortality is still slow.
Some types of cancer remain incurable because they have spread beyond the scope of current treatments. However, as with most diseases, prevention is better than cure. In particular, a single fruit can act as a buffer against inflammation and the development of cancer.
Cherries reduce the risk of breast cancer. The fruit contains antioxidant compounds called anthocyanins, which reduce inflammation.
This flavonoid gives cherries their vibrant color and has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and chemopreventive properties that prevent the growth of cancer cells.
A review of the health benefits of cherries by USDA scientists found that regular consumption of cherries reduces markers of inflammation.
In particular, it may have “the highest anti-inflammatory content of all foods.”
Research has shown that two servings of cherry juice daily for three weeks can lead to a significant reduction in inflammatory markers. The benefit was greater among women who had higher levels of inflammation at the start of the study.
In addition to reducing the risk of some forms of cancer, the fruit can also help control blood pressure due to the high potassium concentration.
