Source from WIKIPEDIA: At a 2007 symposium on berry health benefits were reports
showing consumption of BLUEBERRIES (and similar berry fruits including cranberries) may alleviate the
cognitive decline occurring in Alzheimer's disease and other conditions of aging.

A chemical isolated from blueberry leaves can block replication of the hepatitis C virus
and might help to delay disease spread in infected individuals.
Feeding blueberries to animals lowers brain damage in experimental stroke.
Research at Rutgers has also shown that blueberries may help prevent urinary tract infections.

Other animal studies found that blueberry consumption lowered cholesterol and
 total blood lipid levels, possibly affecting symptoms of heart disease.
Additional research showed that blueberry consumption in rats altered glycosaminoglycans  which are vascular cell components affecting control of blood pressure.
