      Lots more where that came from! :)

    How much of this positive effects actually occurs inside humans? These are extracts applied directly to cancer cells, no? I’ve read that for example, anthocyanins don’t make it that far in our bodies (whether or not these are what gives the anti-cancer effect).

      Many phytonutrients actually make it all the way through our system!, bathing our cells in antioxidants along the way. You can see evidence of this when we eat beets- the anthocyanins and betacyanins turn urine red.

      Apologies for the very long response time!

    At what point in your career did you choose medical research over comedy? (or maybe the jury is still out on that?) Always enjoyable. No, I don’t want to eat all those nasty parts of a pig. If the choice is between berries and ANYTHING, berries wins everytime. They are so delicious!

    I love your blogs and information you send out. Very trusting site…
    I am curious about a product called Juice Plus+, headquartered in Memphis area . It has a nutrition facts label and are not vitamins. 25 whole raw vine ripe fruits and vegetables concentrated in capsule form. These bridge the gap between what people actually eat and what we should eat. Non gmo, gluten free, dairy free, kosher. What is your expert thoughts
    about this product?

    Dr Greger,

    Thanks for your comments on berries. Quoting Dr. Otto Warburg, Nobel Prize winner 1934, stating that high fructose consumption stimulates cancer growth, everyone should no more that grams of fruit per day or aboutz4z
    strawberries. Could you comment on that line of reasoning, pls. Your
    comments would help all
