This delicious fruit is recommended in the prevention of various diseases such as blood disorders, heart disease, regulation of sugar and fat, renal disease, cancer and so on.

Blueberries should turn to people struggling with their weight because they are useful in fiber diets due to give a feeling of fullness. Unlike fresh berries gently detoxify the body, dried blueberries stop diarrhea.

Now researchers at the University of California found that they can help in the fight against breast cancer.

They studied three groups of mice: one had a normal diet, another was added five percent blueberry powder, while the 'subjects' of the third group consumed ten percent of the blueberries over a period of two weeks. After this period, all mice were injected with aggressive breast cancer cells.

Six weeks later, the researchers concluded that the mice who consumed five percent blueberry powder to your usual diet failed to reduce tumor size by as much as 75 percent compared to the control group.

It seems that the greater amount of blueberries does not mean better protection, since the tumor size decreased by 60 percent in mice that consumed ten percent blueberry powder.

These benefits can be attributed to flavonoids from blueberries, anthocyanins and flavonols in particular.The researchers noted that the blueberries could help humans, provided that the equivalent need for protection, is about two cups of fresh berries a day.
