A Healthy Diet can Prevent Strokes

A healthy diet can be a guide for preventing strokes, than individual foods and nutrients, a leading neurologist says.
Coffee, chocolate, fish, fruit and veg are all associated with reducing an individual’s likelihood of getting a stroke, whilst meat, salt and B vitamins have been held to task for increasing the risk.
Other research shows that better predictors of strokes are if an individual does not adhere to a healthy diet and if he or she is obese .
An individual’s diet and balance between dietary intake and expenditure appear to be key determinants of stroke risk than individual nutrients and food Professor Hankey from the Univeristy of Perth confirms.
Prof Hankey stated that there is minimal information as to which individual nutrients and foods impact upon the risk of stroke as there is a lack of reliable evidence from randomised clinical trials.
