Don't Forget the Cranberries!

Load up on the cranberries this Thanksgiving, because they rank second-highest of all fruits in disease-fighting antioxidants (blueberries being number one). Chemicals in cranberries can also ward off urinary tract infections by keeping bacteria from sticking to bladder cells.

A recent University of Washington study showed that drinking 8 ounces of cranberry juice cocktail appeared twice as protective as 4 ounces. Note: Cranberries have not been shown to cure infections; they're preventative only. Happy Thanksgiving!

Why is Thanksgiving Celebrated with Turkey?

Turkey has become the traditional Thanksgiving fare because at one time it was a rare treat. During the 1830s, an 8 to 10 pound bird cost a day's wages. Even though turkeys are affordable today, they still remain a celebratory symbol of bounty. In fact, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin ate roast turkey in foil packets for their first meal on the moon.
