ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI)- Fruits and vegetables are important to a healthy diet, but one super food in particular may help stave off dementia.
Scientists from the United Kingdom told a U.S. conference that snacking on blueberries from middle age could prevent Alzheimer’s and dementia from developing in later ages.
To explain the advantages of blueberries, Nutritionist Melissa Ramel and Geriatric Dr. Angela Sanford stopped by the Fox 2 kitchen this morning.
Ramel is an instructor at Saint Louis University (SLU) and Nutrition Coordinator with the city of St. Louis Department of Health. Dr. Sanford is an assistant professor of Internal Medicine in the Department of Geriatrics at SLU.
