There are many factors that can influence a person’s risk of stroke. They include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, atrial fibrillation, smoking, an increased age, and more. In fact, what you eat can have a direct impact on your stroke risk, because foods have the ability to either positively or negatively affect your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and your weight.
One of the easiest ways you can lower your stroke risk is by maintaining a healthy diet. Watching what you eat by avoiding high-fat, high-sodium foods and instead choosing nutritious, fiber-rich foods can have a direct impact on your risk of stroke. Are you willing to give it a try?
