Here's a study that's actually useful and tasty at the same time: according to a study done in rats, strawberries have a beneficial effect on the mammalian stomach. Medical Xpress reports:
The conclusions of the study state that a diet rich in strawberries can have a beneficial effect when it comes to preventing gastric illnesses that are related to the generation of free radicals or other reactive oxygen species. This fruit could slow down the formation of stomach ulcers in humans.
Gastritis or inflammation of the stomach mucous membrane is related to alcohol consumption but can also be caused by viral infections or by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication (such as aspirin) or medication used to treat against the Helicobacter pylori bacteria.
So does this mean you can drink as much as you want as long as you eat strawberries? Or strawberry margaritas won't get you drunk? If these scientists ever run out of mice, we'd just like to declare that we would gladly put our tastebuds, stomach and liver to the test for science! (and free booze)
