Undated (WXOW) - When it comes to preventing stroke and dementia not all antioxidants are created equal.
Researchers tracked about 5,400 people aged 55 years and older for nearly 14 years.
The risk of developing brain disease was the same for those who drank high levels of antioxidants and those who drank low levels.
Experts say antioxidants in foods like blueberries, strawberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, corn, and spinach can be beneficial.
There is growing evidence that eating lots of fruits and vegetables and even drinking alcoholic beverages may reduce the risk of stroke.
