Vegetable fat reduces the risk of suffering a stroke

Ground Report | New Delhi: What’s the best food and worst food; Eating high amounts of red, processed meats, and animal fat increases your risk of stroke. However, consuming vegetable fat would have the opposite effect, according to research from the American Heart Association.

Our conclusions indicate that the type of fat and the different dietary sources of it are more important than the total amount in preventing cardiovascular disease, including stroke, said Fang Lei Wang, lead author of the study and investigator in the department of nutrition from the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health in Boston.

27 years of studies

The study looked at 11,7136 participants over 27 years, with an average age of 50 years. Of the group, 63% were women and all were free of heart disease and cancer at the time of enrollment.

Every 4 years, the participants filled out questionnaires on their eating habits that were used to calculate the amount, source, and types of fats they habitually consumed.

During the study, 6,189 participants suffered strokes, including 2,967 ischemic strokes and 814 hemorrhagic strokes.

An ischemic stroke is, according to the US National Library of Medicine, a stroke caused by a blood clot that blocks or plugs a blood vessel in the brain.
