Abstract

"North by East" piece reporting on the medicinal properties of blueberries. The research shows that the berries can reduce eyestrain, help control diabetes, and improve blood circulation. The key to the benefits derived from the berries is due to the blue pigments called anthocyanins, according to Willy Kalt, Ph.D., a plant physiologist with the Kentville (Nova Scotia) Research Centre. Anthocyanins are potent antioxidants. Kalt hopes to find other blueberry benefits.
