I'm so glad pomegranates are back in season. I love them. Are there health benefits from eating pomegranates, so I don't have to feel bad about spending money on them?
Scientists keep finding new powers for pomegranates. One recent study shows that an extract of this fruit discourages the development of prostate cancers in an animal model (Journal of Medicinal Food, Fall 2004). Another study shows that eating pomegranates can reduce total cholesterol and bad LDL cholesterol and improve lipid ratios in diabetics.
