Ode to cranberry juice and plagiarism

CRANBERRY JUICE IS AWESOME! So I copied and pasted from Wikipedia, but I am going to tell you that I wrote this all myself. I wrote this all myself.

Cranberry juice
is the juice of the cranberry. Commercially, it is sold in either as a pure juice which is quite tart, or, more commonly, ascranberry juice cocktail, mixed with water and sugar or an artificial sweetener (such as aspartame or sucralose), or in blends with other juices, such as apple or grape. These may also be blended with other juices or flavors.

Cranberry juice is known to have various health benefits. These include:

Cranberry juice contains phytochemicals, which may help prevent cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Cranberry juice may help prevent and relieve the symptoms of urinary tract infections by primary and secondary means. The primary means works on the bacteria directly by altering the molecular structure of the fimbriae on the virulent strains of the bacteria that cause the infections. The secondary means works indirectly on the bacteria by changing the intravesical pH (the pH of the bladder's contents) making it more acidic.

Cranberry juice is high in oxalate, and has been suggested to increase the risk for developing kidney stones, although more recent studies have indicated it may lower the risk.
