On Wednesday, a new study suggests that older people who use olive oil in their cooking and on their salads may have a lower risk of suffering a stroke. It is found by researchers in a study followed older French adults for five years that the olive users have 41% less chances of stroke as compared to those who never used the olive oil.
It is reported in the journal Neurology hint that the well known connection between olive oil and heart disease might extend to stroke as well. Actually, Olive oil is a key ingredient in the Mediterranean diet. It is suggested that the diet helps control risk factors for heart disease, like high blood pressure, abdominal obesity and elevated levels of bad LDL cholesterol. High olive oil intake is related to a lower risk of heart attack, and a longer lifespan among heart attack survivors.
A neurologist at Columbia University Medical Center in New York, Dr. Nikolaos Scarmeas said that people who use a lot of olive oil may be very different from people who dont. Olive oil users may, for example, have higher incomes, eat better overall or exercise more often than people who never use the oil. Olive oil is closely linked with lower stroke risk.
