Intake of flavonoids, carotenoids, vitamins C and E, and risk of stroke in male smokers

Intake of flavonoids, carotenoids, vitamins C and E, and risk of stroke in male smokers

Stroke 31(10): 2301-2306

Antioxidants may protect against atherosclerosis and thus prevent cerebrovascular disease. We studied the association between dietary antioxidants and subtypes of stroke. The study cohort consisted of 26 593 male smokers, aged 50 to 69 years, without a history of stroke. They were participants of the Alpha-Tocopherol, Beta-Carotene Cancer Prevention (ATBC) Study in Finland. The men completed a validated dietary questionnaire at baseline.
