Recently, one can often hear about such a diagnosis as thrombosis. Did you know that this disease was previously diagnosed quite often, including deaths. And all this in the “pre-coronavirus” era. We will tell you which foods are harmful and which ones help in this case.
Thrombosis can occur due to diet or bad habits. The thrombosis caused by the vaccination of some people with AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson causes great grief, although the death rate is low. Many do not even suspect that the reason lies in poor nutrition, although diet plays an important role here. People are worried about their health and, of course, most of them do not want to be among the percentage of victims of thrombosis at all. What you need to do for this and what you need to know.
According to news4health.gr, thrombosis can occur not only with vaccinations, but also due to smoking and, in very rare cases, from birth control pills.
This has been discussed many times already, and there is a lot of research that has been carried out in order to “reach out” to people that they themselves are harmful to their health! It is unlikely that you will get thrombosis from the vaccine, compared to the reluctance to give up simple daily habits like … smoking, which leads to thrombosis. Much research has been done specifically on smoking and contraceptive use, although many argue that it would be inappropriate to make comparisons, for example, between vaccinations and smoking.
In any case, according to scientific research, poor nutrition (like fast food) shortens life on a global scale, killing more people than smoking and hypertension. A study from roughly 200 countries links poor nutrition to nearly 11 million deaths worldwide in 2017. This represents 22% of adult deaths that year.
Previous studies have correlated and found that tobacco use causes 8 million deaths a year and hypertension 10 million deaths. Since the debate about the possibility of a thrombosis never ends, we will first “present” you with products that will help you NOT get this insidious disease.
Products that can help us NOT get thrombosis are:
A fish; Domestic bird; Vegetables; Fruits; Whole grains Nuts; Legumes; Healthy fats like olive and canola oils.
First, they contain nutrients, flavonoids and antioxidants that directly reduce inflammation in the body. And as part of a healthy eating plan, they can help you lose weight, which lowers blood pressure.
Other nutrients are potentially beneficial, such as the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil and the flavonoids found in dark chocolate, grapes, and tea.
Certain healthy foods rich in vitamin K can reduce the effectiveness of anticoagulants (blood thinners if you are taking them). If you are taking anticoagulants, you are strongly advised to talk to your doctor before consuming foods such as:
Spinach; Cabbage; Brussels sprouts; Broccoli; Cranberry; Green tea; Mayonnaise; Fish fat.
You may not need to completely eliminate them from your diet, but your doctor may advise you to eat fewer of these foods.
Inflammation is the way your body responds to cell destruction by random invaders such as chemicals, pollen, and germs. But certain foods can cause long-term inflammation in the body. This can lead to serious illnesses such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. You should talk to your doctor about this.
To reduce the chance of blood clots, avoid the following foods:
Processed foods such as white bread, white rice, crackers, French fries, sugar cereals, sweets, prepackaged foods, and fast food. Also carbonated soft drinks, candy, margarine and bacon, red and processed meat (sausages).
When there is more salt in the body than is needed, blood pressure rises because the body “holds water.” This tires the heart and can cause circulatory problems and blood clots. Convenience foods contain enough salt, much more than the body needs. Depending on age and health status, most adults should not take 2,300 milligrams of sodium per day, which is essentially a teaspoon.
Alcohol: to drink or not to drink?
A small glass of wine can dilute the blood and help your heart. However, more than two glasses of wine have the opposite effect and increase the number of platelets in the blood and therefore there is a risk of thrombosis.
What about coffee?
Data from three different studies have shown that drinking up to 4 cups of coffee a day can increase your risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) by 11%, while drinking more than 5 cups of coffee will decrease your risk by 25%. Unreasonable consumption of coffee in large quantities increases insomnia, headaches, tremors in the hands and more …
Thrombosis risk for various reasons
In any case, as shown in the tables below, the risk of thrombosis from the AstraZeneca vaccine is significantly lower than the risk of thrombosis from other causes, such as smoking or birth control pills.
However, the most telling statistic is that if you are infected with COVID, your risk of thrombosis reaches 16.5%.
Risk of blood clots due to:
AstraZeneca vaccine: 8 cases per million vaccinations (0.0008%). Birth control pills: 500–1000 cases per million women (0.05% to 0.12%). Smoking: 1,763 cases per million smokers, 0.18%. COVID infection: 165,000 cases per million patients (16.5%).
The risk of dying from the vaccine compared to other causes:
The image above compares the risk of thrombosis from the AstraZenaca vaccine with the risk of death from other conditions (data from the Winton Center for Risk Information and Evidence, Cambridge, UK).
Note that the risk of dying from the vaccine is much lower than the risk of thrombosis in general, because only a small percentage of citizens end up with this complication. The risk of death from Covid is higher than the risk of thrombosis due to vaccinations, even in young adults.
