Saunas May Reduce Stroke Risk
People who used a sauna 2-3x per week had a 12% reduction in stroke risk and people who used a sauna 4-7x per week reduced their stroke risk by 62% compared to people only using 1x per week.
Researchers studied 1,628 men and women aged 53 to 74, free of stroke at the start. They had data on body mass index, alcohol consumption, smoking, blood pressure, blood lipid levels, and other health and behavioral characteristics that affect cardiovascular health. From The New York Times
