Peanuts keep away from stroke and heart disease
Osaka: The number of deaths from heart disease all over the world, including Pakistan, is increasing at an alarming rate and now the news has come that eating four or five peanuts a day can make a big difference.
But the study was conducted in Japan, and Asians may benefit from it. But it is important to make peanuts a part of your routine.
The study, published in the American Heart Association’s website, states that eating five peanuts a day can reduce the risk of blood clots and stroke by up to 20 percent. The risk of coronary heart disease can be reduced by up to 13%, including stroke and heart disease.
The good news is that eating peanuts has equally positive effects on men and women. In this way, we can call peanuts a magical food, even a small amount of which can be very useful.
Satio Ikehara, a professor of social medicine at the Osaka University Graduate School of Medicine, and his colleagues insist that peanuts are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids, minerals, vitamins, and fiber. Protects against pressure, irritation and harmful cholesterol. An earlier US survey had found similar evidence.
However, the new survey was conducted on 74,793 men and women between the ages of 45 and 74 who were volunteered by the Japanese Public Health Center for a lengthy study. For an average of 15 years, all people were screened and told to eat peanuts.
Of those who made it a habit to eat just a handful of peanuts, the risk of both types of stroke, ie, ischemic and hemorrhage, was found to be 87% lower, while the risk of heart disease was also avoided.
It should be noted that the American Heart Association has already stated that it is necessary for every person over the age of 40 to eat 10 tablespoons of peanuts daily. This will not only protect them from cholesterol and blood pressure, but also from life-threatening strokes and heart disease.
