News from the American Heart Association:
*1/2 to 1 1/2 glasses of wine daily will reduce your risk of stroke by almost 1/5!
*An orange, grapefruit, or other citrus daily will also modestly reduce your risk of stroke!
Glass of wine a day will keep the doctors away! Pick your favorite! It decreases a woman’s risk of both ischemic (clotting) and hemorrhagic (bleeding) strokes by about 20%.
An orange a day will also keep the doctor away, as it turns out! Oranges have antioxidants useful for stroke prevention, and provide a “modest” reduction in stroke risk.
So, ladies, what do we know?? Dark chocolate, oranges, and a glass of wine will cut your risk of stroke. Sounds like a fabulous wine and fondue party! Are ya with me? 😉
