Olive Oil May Reduce Risk of Stroke in Adults

Posted on February 17, 2016 by Disability Help Group

After suffering a stroke, you may be left with disabling complications that prevent you from working. This may entitle you to receive Social Security disability benefits.

According to a report from CNN Health, a diet high in olive oil may reduce the risk of stroke in older adults, based on a study of participants age 65 and older.

Strokes are the third leading cause of death in the United States. The risk of having a stroke increases with age. In fact, according to the American Heart Association, the risk of suffering a stroke doubles for each decade of life once you hit 55.

After analyzing patients who used olive oil on a frequent basis, it revealed a 41% reduced risk of suffering a stroke. Used on a frequent basis equated to using olive oil not only for cooking but as dressing on salads or dipping bread in it.

This may explain previous studies that have shown health benefits in the Mediterranean Diet, which includes incorporating olive oil. This diet has also been shown to reduce the risk of diabetes, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, Parkinson’s and cancer.

If you would like legal counsel in determining your eligibility for Social Security disability benefits, then your next step should be to seek help from a Georgia Social Security disability representative.
