Eating cherries can reduce the risk of gout attacks, a study has suggested. US researchers found patients with gout who ate cherries over a two-day period had a 35% lower risk of attacks compared to those who did not. The study in Arthritis & Rheumatism said cherries contain anthocyanins, antioxidants which contain anti-inflammatory properties. UK experts said the research offered "good evidence" of the benefits of eating cherries for people with gout.
