By Sharon Kiley Mack – New research at the University of Maine is showing that wild blueberries may have a cardioprotective effect by helping to regulate blood pressure and combat heart disease, specifically atherosclerosis. Maine is the world’s largest producer of wild blueberries. David Bell, executive director of the Maine Wild Blueberry Commission, said Friday that Dr. Dorothy Klimis-Zacas, professor of clinical nutrition and lead researcher from the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition, conducted studies over the past decade.
