Just in time for your Thanksgiving meal, researchers at the University of Rochester report in the scientific journal Caries Research (good reading for insomniacs) that cranberries may help prevent cavities. Now ordinarily, news like this is cause for celebration at the Cranberry Growers Association in Cape Cod, Wisconsin and elsewhere. Unfortunately the growers’ PR teams have checked out for the weekend, as have many reporters in newsrooms across the country. If only the journal had issued its report on Monday to take advantage of the larger news hole. (I couldn’t resist.) Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
