Blueberries have long been used for medicinal purposes. The Russians used them to cure flux and other abdominal problems. Native Americans used the leaves to make a tea that acted as a relaxant during childbirth and was considered to be good for the blood. Blueberry juice was used to treat coughs and also anaemia because of its high iron content. Pilots of the British Royal Air Force belived that bilberries, which are a relatives of blueberries, improved their night vision and consumed them liberally during World War II. Studies show this was a sound theory because blueberries contain large amounts of antioxidants, bioflavonoids which are used by the rods in the eye for night vision.

  • When you work in front of a CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) computer screen you are constantly exposed to low-level ionizing radiation, consisting of electrons that are relatively slower moving than the speed of light. These slow- moving particles do not penetrate your body completely but just enter and get trapped inside. Inside the body these particles collide with atoms and produce altered substances called "free radicals", which in combination with normal molecules form strange and unnatural products which affect the body’s immune system.
  • This is the cause of increased concern about the use of CRT's by pregnant women. Free radical formation in your body could harm the fetus.
  • However LCD's (Liquid Crystal Displays) emit considerably less low-level radiation than CRT's. Remember, however, that any source of rapidly moving electrons produces a radiation field that interacts with you while in your body. More...
