Coffee May Reduce the Risk of Stroke
Stroke (United Press International, Inc.)
A study involving almost 35,000 women found those who drank little or no coffee had an increased risk of stroke, researchers in Sweden found.
Lead researcher Susanna Larsson of the National Institute of Environmental Medicine at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm said coffee consumption has been inconsistently associated with stroke incidence and mortality in previous studies.
The research team investigated the association between coffee consumption and stroke incidence in the Swedish Mammography Cohort, with women who did not have a history of cardiovascular disease or cancer at baseline in 1997.
National Stroke Association’s mission is to reduce the incidence and impact of stroke by developing compelling education and programs focused on prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and support for all impacted by stroke.
