Cranberry OK.: It has some mild benefit in preventing urinary tract infection. Since you are a male it is probably a wast of your time and money in addition to being distasteful.

No better than water: Recent sicientific studies done in a randomized fashion with placebo control showed no benefit from cranberry juice or pills in reducing the frequency of bladder infections. Do not feel bad about stopping it!
