High-antioxidant foods may help protect you from bleeding on the brain

Oct 02, 2007

A subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a type of stroke where a blood vessel ruptures causing bleeding over the surface of the brain. It is usually due to a ruptured aneurysm. It can lead to death or severe disability. In this study Japanese scientists compared patients who suffered with a SAH to healthy adults who were closely matched to the patient in age and gender. Those who consumed the most high-antioxidant foods had a 46% drop in the risk of suffering with a SAH. The protective foods included soy foods, tea, and green-yellow vegetables. The study is published in the September 2007 issue of the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
