Arthritis affects approximately 20 percent of Americans, according to the National Institutes of Health.

I think it is true that both blueberies and the tart cherries are good for you and I have been taking the tart cherry juice and find it to be of some hielp. I have actually cut down on the asap and the hydrodone. I have yet to loose the weight but then again I am a surgar addict and can't live without my Jelly Belly. But I have cut way way down on those as well. I think that the natural fruitcose that is in the cherry juice curbs that craving. There is a major problem with blueberries for me. I can only take them for so long and then I can not swollow them for a while. It does not trigger a gag reflex but I litterally unable to swallow them. It is the same with pork if I eat too much pork chops and pork sausage it gets to where I can not swallow the pork. Now I am not sure about the gin and grapes but there is truth to what they say about being full of Vim and Vinegar. It seams that if you take a cople of tbsp of vinegar a day it will increase your metabolic rate. The only thing is no one is really sure what the Vim is. Do and take what makes you feel good.

If this is not approprioate, delete it, but raisens soaked in gin will help if eaten only 9 of them a day. Was told this by an old friend who does a lot of natural cures. I can't ever think to get any but my sister says it works.

okay it is great for oa and for memory loss but i can attest to the fact that it must take buckets of it to acomplish anything for me. we lived within 2 miles as the crow flies to a blue berry farm that a friend of mine owns and she always had lusious great blue berries i used to buy them by the gallon jugs and freeze them and we ateblue berries all the time and right thru winter. they r very healthy and a much better choice than many other things to snack on i love them in summer just a handful right outta the freezer pop one in at a time and mmmm. well go article good choice for food but not all that it is cracked out to be in claims i think

I used to eat a lot of them but have cut back to just a few here and there since I am trying to avoid nightshades. I love blueberries and strawberries both, I haven't completely given them up but have cut way back on my consumption of both of them.

I live in Fl. and when it's blueberry season (June/July) I make a trip to the local grove and pick at least 25 lbs and freeze them. They last all year. This grower doesn't use chemicals and the berries are always delicious. If you need instructions on how to freeze just let me know. (You don't want them to end up in one large clump.)

I buy frozen blueberries. The largest pakage is usually the best price. They keep well to. I find fresh can spoil quickly.

Has anyone priced blueberries in the grocery stores lately? Anyone living on a restricted budget cannot afford the price of blueberries.
