Eating a lot of fat, especially the kind that’s in cookies and pastries, can significantly raise the risk of stroke for women over 50, a large new study finds. The local channel 10 news covered the study and it’s findings.
We already know that diets rich in fat, particularly artery-clogging trans fat, are bad for the heart and the waistline.
The new study is the largest to look at stroke risk in women and across all types of fat. It showed a clear trend: Those who ate the most fat had a 44 percent higher risk of the most common type of stroke compared to those who ate the least. Women suffering from strokes and heart disease are on the rise in America.
