Cranberries and Urinary Tract Infections

Just in time for Thanksgiving, we are having an episode dedicated to the humble cranberry. We discuss the use of cranberries to preventing urinary tract infections with Dr. Manisha Juthani-Mehta. In addition to hearing about something called proanthocyanidin, we discuss her recent publication in JAMA on whether cranberry capsules decrease the presence of bacteriuria plus pyuria in older women living in nursing homes.
