Strawberry daiquiris can 'help fight cancer'
t's cool, colourful and deliciously sweet, and if that weren't enough, the strawberry daiquiri is also good for your health.
Scientists have found that treating the berries with alcohol boosts their cancer-fighting properties - suggesting that strawberry-based cocktails may be better for us than we realised.
The researchers, who were looking for ways to keep the fruit fresh during storage, discovered that alcohol enhances the strawberry's ability to mop up harmful molecules linked to cancer, heart disease and arthritis.
Strawberries were already known to be good at tackling the dangerous free-radicals - but now it seems that adding a dash of alcohol into the mix makes them even better at fighting disease. Suitable cocktails could include the strawberry daiquiri.
