Researchers discover that blueberry when combined with radiation therapy increase it effectiveness from 20% to 70% in vitro. Quote:  “Radiation decreased cancer cells by approximately 20 percent. Interestingly, the cell group that received only blueberry extract had a 25 percent decrease in cancer. However, the biggest decline in cancer cells occurred in the radiation and extract group, with a decrease of about 70 percent.”
