Study Shows Strawberries Could Treat Diabetes

A popular summertime fruit could play a role in helping to treat type 1 diabetes. A study has linked flavonoids found in strawberries as possible treatment.

New research in mice from the Salk Institute of Biological Studies in California suggests a flavonoid called fisetin may lessen complications of type 1 diabetes.

Strawberries in particular are rich in fisetin. More studies are needed to confirm the benefit.

    So you would rather sit in the dark with no preliminary information to educate yourself with... and just wait till they have everything perfect and go SURPRISE! The "will" results come after the "could" results. Follow along.
