ADDITIONAL HEALTH INFO:  Blueberries have slightly more calories and less vitamin C than other berries.  After measuring more than 40 commercially available fruits and vegetables for antioxidant activity, the US. Department of Agriculture has ranked blueberries as far and away the best.  Antioxidants are thought to neutralize free radicals, which are unstable oxygen molecules associated with cancer, heart disease and the effects of aging.

Blueberries, in particular, are credited with working like cranberries to help ward off urinary tract infections, and a couple of years ago, they were shown to reverse mental declines in old laboratory rats.

There are two kinds of blueberries; cultivated and wild.  Cultivated berries are about three to four times as large as the wild ones and have a powdery protective coating.  Wild blueberries are smaller and darker and have a more intense flavor.
