Could a handful of berries each day keep the cardiologist away? A study shows that women who eat blueberries and strawberries most days of the week may reduce their risk of heart attack. Researchers followed 93,000 young and middle-aged women for 18 years. Those who ate more than three half-cup servings of blueberries and strawberries a week were 32% less likely to have heart attacks in later years. The health benefits may come from
anthocyanins, antioxidants that create the red, blue, and purple color in strawberries, blueberries, and other fruits and vegetables. But women who ate more berries also reported other healthy habits, such as exercising and refraining from smoking.
