Red Meat Consumption Can Lead To Stroke

( — Women consuming lots of red meat can increase stroke risk

If you are women and consume way too much of red meat you can be putting yourself at a higher risk for stroke according to Swedish researchers.

Researchers have discovered those women who consume a minimum of 3.6 ounces daily or more were at a 42% greater risk to suffer from a stroke due to blocked blood flow in the brain in comparison to those women who had consumed less than a little under one ounce of red meat daily.

Diets in which contain large amounts of red meat have been associated to numerous negative health effects. These health effects include increase risk of certain cancers, heart disease and high blood pressure. Three studies had looked into the association of stroke and red meat. Only one of those studies had linked red meat to stroke.

In further examination of the association, Dr. Susanna Larrson and associates of the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, had taken a look at 34,670 women, age range 39 years to 73 and all women had no cardiovascular disease or cancer at the start of the study in 1997.
