DANBURY -- A Danbury-area health study involving 10 years of daily wild blueberry consumption and yearly reports to the American Aging Association will be celebrated Sunday at 2 p.m. at C-Town supermarket, 45 North St..

The store, formerly Deep's Supermarket, has helped distribute wild blueberries at no profit for almost 10 years, enabling the longest data set of how blueberries improve memory.

The meeting will review Connecticut results and results from other studies showing blueberries can protect against heart and stroke damage and certain kinds of cancer.

Blueberries are also associated with the growth of new nerve cells and reduced risk of diabetes.
