This week, research scientists from all over the globe are meeting in Pismo Beach for the biennial Berry Health Benefits Symposium, the only conference to focus on berries and human health.

The schedule includes 26 presentations by scientists sharing their findings: how eating strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, cranberries, and other berries have positive health effects related to cardiovascular, brain and gut health; metabolism; and cancer prevention. Since 2005, these gatherings have provided an opportunity for scientists to share their work, collaborate on efforts and identify new avenues of inquiry.
