Ook peren zijn goed om de kans op hart- en vaatziekten te verminderen.... 3 tot 5 porties fruit en groenten per dag eten, verlaagde het risico op beroerte met 11 %.
Meer dan 5 porties fruit en groenten eten verlaagde het risico met 26%.
(nog beter...... 9 porties per dag nemen.... bv deels als vers geperst sap, daarin zit ook het meest zuivere water dat er is, dat is door de planten namelijk voor ons gezuiverd :cheer: ))

Op deze pagina vond ik de fruit en beroerte informatie;
Including pears in an overall healthy diet may reduce risk for cardiovascular disease and stroke!
In an analysis comparing studies of more than 257,551 individuals, increasing daily fruit and vegetable intake was found to decrease risk of stroke!
Fruits and vegetables are full of vitamin C, fiber, potassium (kalium), and antioxidants.
Compared with individuals who eat fewer than 3 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, those who eat three to five servings daily are 11% less likely to have a stroke. Those who eat more than 5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day have a risk reduction of 26%! These findings support eating more fruits and vegetables every day!

In other research, the diets of 90,513 men and 141,536 women were observed and amounts of fruits and vegetables eaten were directly linked to stroke risk.
For each additional serving of fruit, stroke risk was decreased by 11%! Although also protective, additional vegetable servings only decreased stroke risk by 3% each. This dose-response relationship suggests that fruit, and fruit and vegetable consumption, decrease the risk of stroke. So eat more fruit!

Nog een beetje van die pagina: over de peer:
Eat pears for a Vitamin C boost that may protect against coronary artery disease!
Measuring vitamin C (ascorbic acid), the antioxidant vitamin, carried in the bloodstream is one way to assess fruit and vegetable intake. High levels in the bloodstream are associated with reduced risk for coronary artery disease, since it protects against oxidative damage that causes vascular injury. However, past studies have found that long-term supplementation with antioxidant pills did not offer any protective benefits. In a study of 979 individuals with no history of heart attack or stroke, those with the highest intake of ascorbic acid from fruits and vegetables had lower BMI, lower blood pressure, lower C-Reactive Protein (a marker of inflammation), and a higher HDL-cholesterol (the “good” cholesterol that protects against heart disease). Those with the highest levels of ascorbic acid had a 33% lower risk of developing coronary artery disease! This suggests that nutrients found in whole fruits work together synergistically, and offer more protection than supplements!
(mee eens, uit (onbespoten) voeding is altijd beter dan uit supplementen, maar dan moet men wel dagelijks heel veel porites fruit en groenten eten om de gewenste dosis nutrienten er uit te halen (9 porties minstens)).
