Reduce the risk of stroke

A healthy lifestyle significantly reduces stroke risk, according to a recent study. Researchers found that women with a healthy diet and lifestyle are 54 percent less likely to have a stroke. The study looked at five factors that make up a healthy lifestyle: healthy diet; moderate alcohol consumption; never smoking; physically active; and healthy body mass index (BMI).

“Because the consequences of stroke are usually devastating and irreversible, prevention is of great importance,” study author Susanna C. Larsson said in a statement. “These results are exciting because they indicate that a healthy diet and lifestyle can substantially reduce the risk of stroke, and these are lifestyle choices that people can make or improve.”

The findings were recently published in an online issue of Neurology.
