Cherries and Diabetes

Cherries seem to influence insulin production, and may reduce likelihood of or severity of diabetes. Anthocyanins, a coloring pigment (and much, much more), increased insulin production in mouse pancreatic cells by 50 percent. This is good. Nice therapy, eating cherries. Both tart and regular seem to be effective; no news on black cherries. (Original research to be published in 5 Jan 2005 J. Agricultural and Food Chemistry, press release here.)
