Coffee Drinking May Lower Stroke Risk
There is a new study which shows that regular coffee drinking appears to reduce the risk of stroke.
According to Ed Edelson, writing for HealthDay Reporter, a study led by Yangmei Li of the University of Cambridge in England showed a 27 percent lower risk of stroke among people who indicated they regularly drank coffee versus those who said they never drank coffee.
The study followed 23,000 men and women for a 12 year period, and found the association of reduced risk of stroke was consistent across subgroups of sex, age, social class, educational level, smoking status, alcohol drinking, tea drinking, and physical activity.
According to Edelson, the findings were to have been presented at the February 25 annual stroke conference of the American Stroke Association in San Antonio.
