Intake of antioxidant vitamins and risk of death from stroke in postmenopausal women



Intake of antioxidant vitamins and risk of death from stroke in postmenopausal women



American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 72(2): 476-483



Antioxidant vitamins may play a role in the prevention of stroke because they scavenge free radicals and prevent low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation. Epidemiological studies that have examined this relation have produced conflicting results. The association between antioxidant vitamin intake and death from stroke was studied using a prospective cohort study of 34 492 post-menopausal women. During follow-up, 215 deaths from stroke were documented.
