"In laboratory animal studies, researchers have found that blueberries help protect the brain from oxidative stress and may reduce the effects of age-related conditions such as Alzheimer's disease or dementia. Researchers found that diets rich in blueberries significantly improved both the learning capacity and motor skills of aging animals, making them mentally equivalent to much younger ones."
Wow! I eat a half pack a day. Good to know.

They rate anti-oxidants with a score called ORAC. (Oxygen radical absorbency capacity)
Blueberries rank the highest.
This ORAC is good to know for when people who know nothing about health start telling you that ____ is the greatest anti-oxidant known to man.

nonfat cochee with ripe blueberries is a staple snack for me, plus it tastes just like blueberry muffin batter.
