Women have a harder time recovering from strokes compared to men

A new study has revealed that women tend to experience more difficulty in recovering from a stroke compared to the opposite sex, an article by CBS News reported on February 7.

After examining the life of 1,300 stroke patients, Dr. Cheryl Bushnell and her team at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center found that after three months women had a harder time coping with the aftermath of a stroke compared to men. Within a year, the trend is still consistent, but the difference is slightly less pronounced.

The study also revealed that married women who have a stroke are more likely to recover faster than single or widowed stroke victims.

Sadly, the oral contraceptive pills Yasmin and Yaz have been found to increase the risk of women having strokes. If you think your stroke was the result of using these dangerous birth control pills, our lawyers at Williams Kherkher can help you explore your options for suing the drug manufacturer for your suffering and losses.

Nutritional content of apples could prevent medical emergencies

A recent study shows that the nutrients in apples could be vital in preventing heart attacks and strokes in people aged 50 and above.

The study, conducted by researchers at the University of Oxford, showed that a large portion of deaths in the UK caused by heart attack and stroke could have been prevented with the daily consumption of an apple

Results of the study suggest that eating apples regularly can be as effective in protecting against heart attack and stroke as cholesterol lowering prescription drugs. Despite this fact, many doctors do not suggest that patients discontinue use of cholesterol regulating prescriptions.

Heart attacks and strokes can be linked directly to complications from irregular blood clotting. Sadly, many popular contraceptives, including Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella increase the risk of abnormal blood clotting. If you have experienced the negative side affects of these contraceptives in Houston, Williams Kherkher could help you seek compensation. Call (888) 220-0640 today to speak with an attorney.
