Why we eat them:

Raspberries- many curative aspects of the red raspberry since as early recorded as 4 A.D.  The leaves were even made into teas for morning sickness, and various parts of the plant have been used for throat gargles, digestive cures, and anti-aging due to its high antioxidant properties.  

"Today, new research suggests that eating red raspberries may prevent cancer by inhibiting the abnormal division of cells and promoting the normal death of healthy cells. Tests conducted at the Hollings Cancer Center at the Medical University of South Carolina have revealed that the human body readily absorbs the ellagic acid from red raspberries. This ellagic acid has been clinically shown to cause apoptosis (cell death) in certain cancer cells." (Project Principal is Yanyun Zhoa, Oregon State University.

Raspberries are a part of the "Eliminator" Group in the law of nourishment, and it only takes a handful to receive their benefits.
