Previous studies have shown that blueberries were rich in healthy anti-oxidant substances, which could help prevent Alzheimer’s — an increasingly common form of dementia — effects such as decline in cognitive skills and memory.

The researchers wanted to determine the consumer’s knowledge about blueberry health benefits and see if there is a knowledge gap with blueberry health benefits among demographic groups.

They found that the low-income populations tend to know less about blueberry health benefits than the high-income groups.

The researchers surveyed more than 2,000 people, over 31 states in the US — mostly on the East Coast and in the Midwest — to see how well informed the consumers were about the health benefits of blueberries.
