Primary Prevention of Stroke by Healthy Lifestyle
First of all, before you look at these numbers you have to understand that “healthy lifestyle,” in this study, is really very non-specific and generally nothing near the level of what I would consider a truly healthy lifestyle. That being said, we still saw a massive risk reduction for stroke of 79% for women and 69% for men.
This is practically gone when you look at the fact that these were “soft” lifestyle factors used. Despite this, the idea that lifestyle is the singlemost potent weapon against stroke remains a big secret to physicians and the general public.
