Study: Southern Food Increases Stroke Risk
A deep fried, Deep South diet could put you in some deep trouble, according to a new university study from Alabama.
FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig has details:
Some of those southern comfort foods could be good…if you like the comfort of a hospital bed.

Deep fried foods, processed meats like bacon and jerky, liver, gizzards and sugary drinks like sweet tea increase the risk of a stroke. That’s according to a study out of the University of Alabama in Birmingham. People eating these foods six meals a week face a 41% higher chance of a stroke than those who eat it just once or twice a month.
Researchers say race does show in the stats – blacks are five times more likely than whites to have this diet pattern – and the results lend credence to the Southeast’s nickname as the “Stroke Belt.”
