I'm going to write two short sentences and then I will ask my question:

  1. Sentence 1:

    • Women have the more risk for stroke more than men, but men have more risk for heart attack than women.
  2. Sentence 2:

    • Because of that, both of the genders should be aware about their life style.

The question: Can I say about the first sentence: "The statement of which I opened with, is true and it's proved scientifically." and will it have an equal meaning if I use "that" instead of "of which" (I mean if I replace them)?

    Incidentally, on reading the message in your profile I realized you have a mistake with the relative clause: "Feel free to correct me about anything that you think it will make me better." It should be: "Feel free to correct me about anything that you think will make me better." The relative "that" refers to "anything" and functions as the subject of the content clause inside the relative clause, which makes "it" unnecessary and incorrect: "You think X will make me better" -> "...about anything that (subsitutes for X) you think will make me better." – Gustavson Feb 18 '17 at 21:15
  • Also, don't take the tag "conjunctions" seriously. Your question is about relative pronouns, and relative pronouns are NOT conjunctions. – Gustavson Feb 18 '17 at 21:16
