Citrus Flavonoids in Oranges Lower Stroke Risk

 

According to a new study, regular consumption of oranges and grapefruits could reduce the chances of suffering a stroke.

"Citrus flavonoids, called flavanones, seemed to be associated with a reduction in risk. Our data suggest that if you eat more citrus fruit, it may modestly reduce your risk of stroke," researcher Aedin Cassidy of the University of East Anglia says.

Almost 70,000 U.S. nurses were asked to complete questionnaires about what they ate. The aim was to study the effects of flavonoids found in plants.
