Eating raspberries can increase your memory, protect your brain from age related decline, help keep your blood from clotting, protect normal cells from cancer, and help kill cancer cells.
Raspberries also contain resveratol â€“ a compound also found in red wine that blocks a key protein that cancer cells need to survive â€“ actually starving them to death.
Resveratrol is part of a group of chemicals called phytoalexins. These are chemicals that plants naturally produce to protect themselves from the environment. It seems they work on people too.
So go ahead – throw some raspberries on your ice cream, or on your pancakes. Berries are a great tasting healthy food.
