More Than Just a Pretty Face

Cherries are one of those fruits that conjure memories of childhood—the warmth of late, spring days and the sheer joy of seeing your mom bringing a heaping bowl of bright red cherries to the table.

Now we know that eating cherries as a part of a healthy diet full of fruits and vegetables may provide health benefits.

Cherries are also low in saturated fat and cholesterol.  Eating cherries as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol and rich in fruits, vegetables and fiber may reduce the risk of heart disease, a condition associated with many factors.
