      There is some evidence that strawberries have the potential to prevent some kinds of cancer but I’m not sure how strong that evidence is yet. It’s certainly not strong enough to encourage everyone to go out and eat strawberries. But who knows, maybe the researchers will be able to work out how the strawberries prevent the cancer and they can then extract that part and make it into a drug?
