Berries Big Health Benefits in Small Packages:
In many studies of connections between specific fruits and vegetables and disease risk, one group of foods kept rising to the top: berries. Several studies have linked eating these tasty fruits, especially blueberries, to lower risks of heart disease, memory loss, diabetes, estrogen-receptor negative breast cancer, Parkinson’s disease, and more. Berries are no miracle food, mind you, and eating them can’t undo the harms caused by less-than healthful food choices. But sprinkled on cereal, added to a fruit salad, munched as a snack, and turned into low-sugar desserts, berries can be a terrific addition to your diet.
