CHERRY STUDY
(2007-05-01)
(wgvu) - CAN A DIET RICH IN TART CHERRIES HELP
REDUCE RISK OF HEART DISEASE AND DIABETES? SCIENTISTS AT THE
UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN IN ANN ARBOR ARE TRYING TO FIND OUT.
A RESEARCH TEAM REPORTED INITIAL FINDINGS TODAY DURING A
CONFERENCE IN WASHINGTON, D.C.
THE SCIENTISTS SAID LABORATORY RATS THAT WERE FED TART CHERRIES
AMONG OTHER FOODS FOR 90 DAYS HAD LOWER CHOLESTEROL AND BLOOD SUGAR
THAN RATS THAT DIDN'T GET CHERRIES.
THOSE ARE FACTORS THAT CAN AFFECT HEART DISEASE AND TYPE 2
DIABETES.
BUT DR. STEVEN BOLLING OF THE UNIVERSITY'S CARDIOPROTECTION
RESEARCH LABORATORY SAID IT'S STILL TOO SOON TO KNOW WHAT THIS
MEANS FOR HUMANS.
THE UNIVERSITY IS PLANNING A CLINICAL STUDY TO HELP ANSWER THAT QUESTION.
