Is cranberry juice and pomelos good for health?

i heard about pomelos being good for high blood pressure , UTIs esp. in pregnant women. i also heard that Cranberry juice thins the blood...... this suggests to me that a life-long healthy diet will prevent health problems from starting. And drugs for each problem are derived from the foods / vitamins / minerals that the patient is actually avoiding. would you agree with my conclusion. I have no science or healthcare education or qualification.
