Fruits Fighting Forgetfulness

From EurekAlert:

British Blackcurrants Beat Alzheimers' Public release date: 23-Jan-2006 "Compounds in blackcurrants could prevent Alzheimer's disease and the characteristics of British berries suggest they do it best…New research led by Dilip Ghosh of the Horticulture and Food Research Institute in New Zealand, shows that compounds in blackcurrants have a potent protective effect in cultured neuronal cells against the types of stress caused by dopamine and amyloid-b, a peptide associated with Alzheimer's disease."

I wanted to make a comment about this story, but I cannot remember what it was.
