Stroke: The single best thing to do to cut your risk
About the author: 

What's the single best way of reducing your risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke? After following the health of 88,500 nurses for 24 years, researchers finally have the answer

What's the single best way of reducing your risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke? After following the health of 88,500 nurses for 24 years, researchers finally have the answer.

They have found that those who regularly ate healthy foods reduced their risk - and the risk continued to drop proportionately with more of the healthy food groups they started eating.

And of the health-giving food groups, fruit had the most dramatic beneficial effect, followed by vegetables and whole grains. Fruits in particular provided the best protection against coronary heart disease and stroke.
