Disappointing finding that cranberry *doesn't* help prevent UTIs

New research indicates that cranberry juice and other cranberry products don't actually help prevent UTIs. This is the go to for most of my girlfriends so besides OTC Azo and antibiotics this is kind of bummer news.

Cranberry Products and Prevention of Urinary Tract Infections

Cranberry products are not associated with prevention of UTIs. However, lack of association of cranberry products with a reduced incidence of UTIs in clinical trials may be due to lack of participant adherence, lack of sufficient active ingredient in the cranberry product, or lack of sufficient statistical power.
