{August 19, 2008}   Reduce Risk for Stroke


August 15, 2008 – A new analysis combining the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study (HPFS) and the Nurses’ Health Study (NHS) confirms that in addition to preventing chronic diseases such as diabetes and coronary heart disease, an overall healthy lifestyle is associated with a significantly decreased risk for stroke.

The reduction in stroke risk was driven by a reduction in ischemic rather than hemorrhagic stroke. A healthy lifestyle combining not smoking, a healthy weight, a healthful diet including moderate alcohol consumption, and daily exercise reduced ischemic strokes by approximately half in both men and women.


Just another reason to do something for yourself. Working out and eating healthy is the only thing *not* causing cancer these days. It’s consistently showing good. I think there’ve been enough studies to safely say you can do it and it’s FDA approved.

Taking away your excuses, one day at a time.
