Red Meat May Raise Stroke Risk
If you eat a lot of red meat, you could be raising your risk of having a stroke.
Researchers at the University of Wurzberg in Germany analyzed data on about 11,000 middle-aged people who didn’t have other risk factors for strokes such as diabetes or heart disease, and followed half of them for about 23 years.
The highest intake of processed meats like bacon, sausage and jerky was linked to a 24 percent higher risk of strokes.
Eating more eggs was linked to a 41 percent greater risk of hemorrhagic strokes, a less common type that is caused by a ruptured blood vessel in the brain.
