Stroke signs and research!

Original Post
  • Up to 80 percent of strokes are preventable. Lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, weight, and blood pressure can have a direct bearing on your individual risk
  • Research shows exposure to sunlight reduces high blood pressure by altering the level of nitric oxide in your skin, thereby reducing your stroke risk
  • If you’re inactive, you have a 20 percent higher risk for having a stroke or mini-stroke (transient ischemic attack) compared to people who exercise enough to break a sweat at least four times a week
  • Recent research found that moderate exercise (such as taking a brisk walk) reduced women’s stroke risk by 20 percent
  • Apparent differences between the sexes have repeatedly emerged in studies on exercise benefits. Men appear to reap greater cardiovascular protection from more vigorous exercise
