White fleshed fruit and vegetable consumption slashes stroke risk in half

(NaturalNews) Stroke is the third leading cause of death in America, affecting nearly one million people and taking the lives of 150,000 each year. Researchers publishing in the American Heart Association journal Stroke have found that increased consumption of white fleshy vegetables and fruits such as apples and pears leads to a dramatic decline in both incidence and death from a stroke. This study is the first to differentiate between different colors in fruits and vegetables and the risk for developing a specific disease or illness. Beneficial phytochemicals such as carotenoids and flavonoids found in the white flesh and skin of apples and pears can dramatically lower your risk of suffering the devastating physical damage caused by a stroke.
Nutrition scientists have long known that the brightly colored skin and flesh of fruits and vegetables confer the health benefits normally associated with eating these foods. To further examine this link, researchers examined the relationship between fruit and vegetable color group consumption and contrasted it with 10-year stroke incidence in a cohort of 20,069 adults, with an average age of 41. Participants were disease-free at the outset of the study and were asked to complete a 178-item food frequency questionnaire detailing foods consumed over the past year.
Fruit and vegetable consumption was broken into four distinct groups, based on pigment color: Green (including dark leafy vegetables), orange/yellow (mostly citrus fruits), red/purple (mostly red vegetables) and white (of which 55 percent were apples and pears). Follow up proceeded for a period of ten years during which time 233 strokes were confirmed. Green, orange/yellow and red/purple varieties of fruits and vegetables were found to have no correlation with stroke incidence.
Apples and Pears Dramatically Lower Stroke Incidence
White fleshed fruits and vegetables demonstrated a 52% lower incidence of stroke over the ten-year period when those consuming the highest amounts were compared to the group with the lowest intake. The researchers found that each 25 gram per day increase in white fruits and vegetable consumption was associated with a 9 percent lower risk of stroke (the average apple is 120 grams).
The lead study author from Wageningen University in the Netherlands concluded "To prevent stroke, it may be useful to consume considerable amounts of white fruits and vegetables... For example, eating one apple a day is an easy way to increase white fruits and vegetable intake." Apples and pears are high in a nutrient known as quercetin and fiber that may convey part of the stroke risk reduction. It's critical to eat a diet packed with fruits and vegetables of all colors to take advantage of the disease-fighting characteristics of a multitude of carotenoids and flavonoids. Future research studies are planned.

It is the Ministry of NSearch that all inherit the Kingdom of God

But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law....

Now the works of the flesh are evident, 

which are adultery fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,

idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies,

outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy,

murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like;

of which I (Paul the Apostle) tell you beforehand,

just as I also told you in time past, that those who 

practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering,

kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control,

against such there is no law. Those who are Christ's

have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Let us not become conceited, provoking one another,

envying one another.

Galatians 5:18-26

{Sorcery: "Pharmakia;" Primarily mentioned as one of the "works of the flesh." In "sorcery" the use of drugs. Blue Letter Bible. Galatians 5:20}
