10 Jun Stroke prevention for women
A new study in the UK has shown that the Mediterranean diet can be particularly effective for the prevention of stroke in women over 40 years old, regardless of whether they are taking hormone replacement therapy or menopause. With this type of food recorded 22% fewer strokes in women 40+. Why the results are different for men, scientists have not yet figured out. In total, the study lasted 17 years for 23,232 participants from 40 to 77 years.
And now think about it: 6.34 million people die every year from strokes all over the world. However, 90% of cases can be prevented with lifestyle modifications that include healthy eating. Moreover, it is not easy to lean on one product, but it will only be possible to achieve changes with the synergistic effect of the components in the entire diet.
