Strawberries also contain ellagic acid, which seems to have some anti-cancer properties, and has been said to reduce heart disease, birth defects, liver problems, and to promote wound healing.
The Hollings Cancer Institute at the University of South Carolina has conducted a double blind study on a group of 500 cervical cancer patients that had everyone excited. Nine years of study have shown that ellagic acid stops cancer cells from dividing in 48 hours, and that ellagic acid causes normal cell death (apoptosis) within 72 hours in cases of breast, pancreas, esophageal, skin, colon and prostate cancers.
