Taking folic acid can slash high blood pressure patients’ stroke risk by almost three quarters, according to new research.
Global statistics show that in 2013 there were 6.5 million deaths from stroke. This means that strokes kill more people each year than AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria added together. Such is the size of this epidemic that about every 2 seconds, someone in the world will suffer a stroke.
Until recently, the root cause of this major public health concern was not properly understood. But based on Dr. Rath’s Cellular Medicine discoveries, we now know that the primary cause of strokes is a deficiency of vitamin C and other essential micronutrients. This means that, through ensuring an optimum intake of these essential dietary substances, strokes can now largely be prevented.
