Here's a good article about how Blueberries and Walnuts prevent and even reversed Cognitive decline and other Neurological diseases in Old Rats as they act on Inflammation (TNF and IL-6) in the Central Nervous system. We know that Inflammation in the CNS is tied to Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Multiple Sclerosis and ALS.

Remember any Vegetable or Fruit that is blue or purple in color have these Anthocynidins that are showing to be the most powerful antiaging and longevity friend we have. I eat frozen Blueberries (tastes like Icecream) daily and the only gripe i have is they are getting expensive....

Now where's my Blueberry Doughnuts.....Just kidding !!

Could it mean that I am entering a stage of Cognitive decline and other Neurological diseases becasue I am craving blueberries and walnuts? If only I could remember where I stored them and started eating them on a regular basis, would it help me to remember where I stored them so that I could eat them on a regular basis?

I hate all these studies they do on animals.

Nevertheless, I did buy blueberries today and am enjoying them now with yogurt and nut and a cup of hot green tea.

I buy frozen blueberries and put them in a smoothie. I don't care for the taste unless they are in pancakes, so I add blackberries along with them. I use these things for the lutein in them that helps the eyes. I could use them for my brain too now that I know what else they are good for. Old age sucks when it comes to memory.

In 1972, a friend and I hiked the 100 mile wilderness on the Appalachian Trail thru central Maine. It's called the 100 mile wilderness, because the trail starting from the summit of Mt Katahdin, doesn't reach the first town ( Monson ) for approximately 100 miles. So that means you gotta carry enough food for about 10-12 days of hiking. To keep the weight down we made a big batch of muesli, consisting of flaked grains, nuts, dried fruit, & seeds. That's the ONLY food we carried. It tasted pretty good for the fist meal or two, but it got old very quickly after the first day on the trail.

Luckily for us, we were hiking during blueberry/huckleberry season and we just about lived on them for the 9 days we spent on the trail from Mt Katahdin to Monson. You burn a tremendous amount of calories when you're hiking up and down mountains all day long carrying a 45 lb backpack. Surprisingly, the blueberries kept us going without fatigue. Funny thing is, we never got tired of them. BTW, we still had about a weeks worth of muesli when we reached Monson, but all of the nuts and dried fruit were picked out of the mix. That was the last time I ever ate muesli. My love affair with blueberries has been ongoing.

Also, I just about always put walnuts in my salads and veggie stir frys. Blueberries and walnuts....2 great foods!

Harry...Thanks for the article.
