A coffee a day keeps the stroke of the way but only applies to women! Liked the rhyme? It is not a joke, but a fact. According to a very serious study conducted in 35 thousand Swedish women aged between 25 and 83 years, whose diet was followed by researchers for a decade, good, risk of stroke for the champion who habitually consumed coffee down 25%. In contrast, women who had chosen to delete selected this delightful drink strengthening of their diet, had no benefit in terms of prevention.
Says Susanna Larsson, coordinator of the study on behalf of the National Institute of Environmental Medicine of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm: “Although we still have too little to recommend coffee as a beverage healthy These findings should raise the mood of women concerned about drinking too much. Some of them avoid consuming coffee because they believe it hurts. Yet, there is increasing evidence that the moderate may reduce the risk of developing diseases such as diabetes, liver cancer and now the stroke. “
Indeed, we have long heard opinions about the opposite of expressed and the like remember, as loyal consumers and connoisseurs, the Italians are not the people who consume more coffee than average in Europe, often the daily cup has been demonized, blamed for causing gastritis, Ulcers, impaired pressure. This revaluation can not please us, I think they are very few Italian women who forgo the pleasure of a good coffee at home or at the bar.
Now, with this additional research, we discovered that this lovely habit may reduce us to the danger of incurring a stroke as a percentage detected between 22 and 25%. This is because, the study points out, and coffee has antioxidant properties, anti-inflammatory and also makes it more sensitive to ‘insulin. In other words, from “vice” to cure, not bad for this little everyday enjoyment, could go much worse!
