How to live longer: Foods and drinks to avoid to significantly lower stroke risk
Share this

The Stroke Association encourages people to lower their stroke risk by “making some healthy lifestyle choices”.

Such moves include cutting down on alcohol, being a non-smoker, maintaining a healthy weight, to eat healthily, and to be as active as you can.

How can I have a healthy diet?

Your GP can refer you to see a dietician who can give you advice on healthy eating.

In general, however, healthier eating consists of:

  • Eating more fruit and vegetables
  • Eating more fibre-rich foods
  • Eating healthy protein, such as lentils
  • Steam, boil and grill instead of frying your food
  • Do not add salt to your food.
