Nutritional content of apples could prevent medical emergencies

Posted on Tuesday, December 17th, 2013 at 1:34 pm    

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.
