Bowels and Blueberries

by Dr. Pamela Frank, BSc, ND

Studies show that blueberries contain a substance that seems to be protective against colon cancer. Blueberries are nutritional powerhouses full of antioxidants that help protect eyesight and the heart, prevent aging and now are shown to help prevent cancer. I try to incorporate them into breakfast at least 3-4 times per week.
Frozen blueberries may be better for you than fresh because they are often wild (meaning organic) and the freezing process actually breaks down the cell wall making it easier to obtain the nutrients from the inside. All my life I’ve loved blueberries – now I know why!
