Strawberry Daiquiris vs Cancer

We've just found news that might convince us of the worth of getting girl drink drunk - at least on daiquiris anyway. Apparently, new research we found referenced at DailyMall.co.uk has found that berry-based cocktails have some health benefits, not the least of which is the ability to "help fight cancer."

Scientists have found that treating the berries with alcohol boosts their cancer-fighting properties - suggesting that strawberry-based cocktails may be better for us than we realised.
