Study Explains How Cranberries Prevent Urinary Infections

...nstitute say that have solved the mystery of how cranberry juice prevents urinary tract infections. Their study, published in the current issue of colloids and Surfaces: B , shows that the juice changes the thermodynamic properties of bacteria in the urinary tract to form an energy barrier that prevents i...
