Don't Forget To Eat Berries Because They'll Help You Remember

16,000 female participants currently over age 70 in a long-term study published by the Annals of Neurology (and funded by the California Strawberry Commission) were asked about food consumption every four years since 1980 and underwent memory tests every two years from, 1995 and 2001. Apparently women who ate the most berries per week (1/2 a cup of blueberries or two 1/2 cups of strawberries) had about 2.5 year advantage over the others in terms of memory decline.
