Cranberries CD cures woman's urinary tract infection

CINCINNATI - After being diagnosed with a urinary tract infection, Mariemont resident Susan Arnold noticed relief from symptoms while listening to a Cranberries song in her car on the way home from the Doctor's office.  "The song ‘Linger' came on the radio and I sensed an immediate improvement."  When Ms. Arnold arrived home she played the hit 1994 Cranberries CD entitled "No Need To Argue".  The first song, "Ode To My Family" immediately began to further suppress her symptoms.  With each song Ms. Arnold felt her infection diminish further.  By the fourth song, "Zombie", Arnold felt no symptoms whatsoever.

During a brief phone interview members of The Cranberries said there has never been a diagnosed case of a urinary tract infection in their home town of Limerick, Ireland since the release of their 1992 debut album, "Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?"

Rolling Stone Magazine reports other bands that are know to produce health benefits include The Cure, Air Supply, and the Barenaked Ladies.  Conversely, bands that reportedly induce illness or bad fortune include Weezer, Third Eye Blind, The Killers, and Death Cab for Cutie.
