Stroke Prevention

The American Heart Association lists several factors for stroke prevention it calls Life’s Simple 7:

  1. Be active.
  2. Control cholesterol.
  3. Eat a healthy diet.
  4. Manage blood pressure.
  5. Maintain a healthy weight.
  6. Control blood sugar.
  7. Don’t smoke.


Preventing a stroke is far better than trying to recover from one. Exercise, can be a huge help. Also, pick a diet low in saturated fats, trans fats, and cholesterol that can increase blood cholesterol levels.

Just 30 minutes of exercise each day and a healthy diet, along with moderate alcohol consumption and not smoking, can reduce your risk of stroke by 80 percent. It’s important to abide by these health standards so that you may live a long, fulfilling, stroke-free life.
