Women who enjoy a daily dose of coffee may like this perk. A study suggests drinking at least a cup everyday might lower their risk of stroke.
Women in a Swedish study who drank a cup or more of coffee daily had a 22 to 25 percent lower risk of stroke, compared to those who drank less coffee or none at all.
Doctors say the study shouldn't send non-coffee drinkers running to their local coffee house. The study doesn't prove that coffee reduces stroke risk, only that coffee drinkers tend to have a lower stroke risk, and it's not clear why.
The study followed about 35,000 women for about 10 years. Results of the study were published online Thursday in the American Heart Association's journal Stroke.
