A study led by Dr. Eric Rimm, associate professor at the Harvard School of Public Health and Harvard Medical School has shown benefits to eating blueberries.
Dr. Rimm’s team gathered data from 93,600 women, aged from 25 to 42 over the course of 18 years. The findings show that women who ate more blueberries and strawberries were 34% less likely to have suffered a heart attack.
In terms of quantity, Rimm says “The people with heart benefits had three or more servings of a half a cup of blueberries or strawberries each week”.
The publication states that “the study focused on young and middle-aged women. But the findings likely apply to everyone, including men.”
