Seems that Stroke is a major killer to adults,
any effective way to prevent it from happening to us?
Diabetes is very common too, will lowering your sugar intake prevent it?
Not to be a rabid vegan, but you could remove the meat and dairy from that list .
Anyway, yeah, eat healthy. Also staying away from intense radiation is a good idea. Also avoid certain types of heart surgery, as they can cause a rush of plaque to the brain, resulting in many minor strokes.
edit: added dairy
It was the strangest thing to see a commercial for a defibrillator on tv.
There are two types of strokes, by blockage or rupture. There are many factors that play a role so the best thing to do is live a healthy lifestyle and see a doctor when you develop a severe headache, pre-bleeding is an important warning sign for rupture. To prevent stroke by blockage, be physically active.
Mainly, live a healthy lifestyle. This includes a healthy diet, and lots of exercise (of course). It's important to keep you blood pressure down, which ties into the lifestyle.
I'm still young, but I have high blood pressure, so the lifestyle is something that I fight to keep up with. The thought of a stroke scares me to death, more so than the threat of a coronary ever will. Good incentive to get on the stationary bike, and not go for that extra taco, I suppose.
And make sure to inherit good genes.
The only sure way to avoid a stroke is to not have a brain.
That's ischemic stroke, the gene probably is involved in the pathogenic process of atherosclerosis It's true that some families are predisposed.
