Cherries reduce risk of gout attacks

A study published in Arthritis and Rheumatism showed that cherry intake decreased the likelihood of gout attacks. cherries

Researchers from Boston University, the University of Sydney, and the Royal North Shore Hospital in New South Wales studied 633 patients with gouty arthritis. They found that cherry intake over a two day period was associated with a 35% lower risk of gout attacks compared with no intake.

When cherry intake was combined with allopurinol use, the risk of gout  attacks was 75% lower.

For a long time cherries have been touted as a natural treatment for gout.  Conventional medicine has affirmed it. Gouty arthritis is not a benign disease and is often associated with other medical conditions such as obesity, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and diabetes. These new findings are encouraging.
