The National Stroke Association

Strokes can happen to anyone at any age. Prevention and education is the key. However it is hard to prevent a stroke from occurring 100% definitively, so taking precautions is the next best thing to do. In this newsletter we will mention a couple of prevention methods. This page also provides many links and resources  to better educate and inform you on strokes.

There are  multiple things you can do to try to prevent a stroke like adjusting personal behaviors. Here is a small list of personal behaviors to adjust: eating habits, physical activity, smoking and drinking. More specifically on the topic of eating habits, try to eat more often from this list of subgroups:

Dark green colors, red and orange colors, legumes (beans and peas), starchy,

Fruits, especially whole fruits,

Grains, at least half of which are whole grains,

Fat-free or low-fat dairy, including milk, yogurt, cheese, and/or fortified soy beverages, protein foods, including seafood, lean meats and poultry, eggs, legumes (beans and peas), and nuts, seeds, and soy products

In addition many medical factors can contribute to having a stroke like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, and circulation problems. Many of the medical issues causing stroke revolve around proper blood flow.  Some factors are beyond your control and there is simply nothing you can do, but please do what you can to limit high blood pressure. Up to 80% of stokes are preventable. Still a major portion of people on disability occur from having a stroke.
