New Study Connects Women and Citrus Fruit
Women who eat a lot of citrus fruit may be at a lower risk for stroke, according to a new study.
Scientists say oranges and grapefruits are full of compounds called flavanones, that could cut down on inflammation.
And researchers say that could be what leads to fewer blood-clot related strokes.
Women who ate a lot of citrus were 19% less likely to have a stroke than women who did not eat much.
Researchers say more studies are needed to pinpoint the exact connection between flavanones and stroke.
