This study could be crucial for future research into dementia, a disease which takes the lives of around 67,000 Britons every year and around one in three people born today are projected to become affected by in the future.

The paper, published in the Nutrients journal, shows that regular blueberry consumption could reduce someone’s risk of dementia.
