i didn't feel the cranberry paper helped at all. it didn't answer the question as to whether it prevents infection, it only answered if colonization could be cleared. additionally, i think it was overgeneralized to all active utis by the paper chase---again, not reporting what the paper findings actually were.

I hear you! We decided to include it as this issue has come up over and over again over the last decade and thought we would get one more nail in the coffin of cranberry juice... agree and thank you for the insightful comments!
