Can berries cut heart disease risk in women?

Posted: Updated:

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, but a new study suggests eating berries could cut the risk of heart attacks in women by as much as 32 percent.

Research by the Harvard School of Public Health show that women who ate high amounts of compounds called anthocyanins — most commonly through eating strawberries and blueberries — were 32 percent less likely to have a heart attack over a two-decade period compared with women who consumed low amounts of the compounds.

Dr. Stephanie Haridopolos joined Good Day Orlando this morning to talk a bit more about the study and its implications.
