Research conducted in China showed people at high risk of esophageal cancer can be spared from the disease after a routine eating strawberry fruit extracts.

Tong Chen, a cancer researcher from Ohio State comperhensive Cancer Center, began to be interested in examining the benefits of strawberries in humans after research in the laboratory experiments on animals show that tasted fruit and fresh acid has anti-cancer benefits.

In a study funded by the California Strawberry Commission, he studied the health of 36 people from three provinces in China which is famous as an area with cases of esophageal cancer in the world.

Chen gave a dried strawberry powder to be mixed with water. By freeze drying is one important way to keep the content of the fruit. In a lab study, Chen uses black raspberries, but because it was not in China he replaced it with strawberries.

In many cases, esophageal cancer develops from precancerous lesions, ranging from mild, moderate and most severe stage. Of the 36 participants who ate strawberry powder for 6 months, 29 people had improved stadium, for example from being a minor scale.

"The results of this study are very encouraging as strawberries histologically proven to reduce the level of precancerous lesions and reduce the division of cancer cells and inflammatory," says Chen.
