Blueberries on Vanilla Ice Cream

Berries are Good for You!The results looked "berry" good for berries in 2004 when United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) researchers released a list of the top 20 antioxidant-rich foods in a study of over 100 commonly consumed foods tested (Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, June 9, 2004). Berries (including blueberries) took 6 of the top 11 spots.

Antioxidants may help increase our immune function and protect against cancer and heart disease. They function by neutralizing the damaging effects of "free radicals" that form during cell metabolism as oxygen is burned.

Besides being good for us - berries just taste great!
