It is not new news that berries are good for you. But this study sheds some light on at least one of the ways they are. Of seventy-two people with risk factors for heart disease, half ate berries equaling 100 grams plus one small glass of berry juice each day. . . .  Amongst those with the highest blood pressure, systolic blood pressure dropped 7.3mm Hg in the berry group compared to only a .2 drop in the control group. The berries also inhibited platelets, reducing the risk of blood clots. So berries help keep circulation healthy.
