Put the cranberry juice down — that is, if you're drinking it to treat a urinary tract infection.
According to a new study out this week, cranberry juice and capsules might not prevent or relieve UTI symptoms.
To reach this conclusion, researchers studied 185 women living in a nursing home. They gave half of the women two high-dose cranberry capsules a day. The other half got placebos.
