According to a recent report by the Times of India, a new study published in the Journal of Food Chemistry said that eating berries such as strawberries helps prevent oral cancer.
Scientists at Ohio State University said that the study found that anthocyanins, such as berries, are rich in anthocyanins, which promote health and prevent cancer. For the first time, scientists conducted saliva testing on 14 participants using extracts from berries such as strawberries, blueberries, wild cherries, blackcurrants and purple grapes. It was found that anthocyanins in berries have a significant effect in improving oral health because they inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria in the mouth. Experts say the new study will help to further develop new foods that can prevent or treat periodontal disease and oral cancer.
