Eating Fruits, Vegetables Reduces Risk Of Stroke In Men And Women Of All Ages

May 8, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
A meta-analysis of 20 studies conducted around the world over two decades demonstrates that the risk of stroke can be reduced significantly by eating fruits and vegetables every day. The clinical studies, which included more than 760,000 men and women who had 16,981 strokes, showed a 32 percent decrease in stroke risk for every 200 grams of fruit eaten, and an 11 percent reduced risk for every 200 grams of vegetables. The Chinese researchers said the beneficial effects of fruits and vegetables applied equally to men and women, to type of stroke (clot or bleeding), and to all ages (younger or older than 55).
