  • Based on this data and research , it is theorised that making mid-life lifestyle changes can actually help in reducing stroke's burden among people.
  • Researchers also found out that increasing consumption of fish and nut with reducing unprocessed red meat consumption have positive impact on reducing the risk of stroke.

According to researchers, middle-aged people can reduce stroke by making modifications in their lifestyle which includes proper exercise, maintaining a healthy weight, making healthy food choices, and quitting smoking. The average age is 75 years for people to have their first stroke. Based on a collection of data and research, it is theorized that making mid-life lifestyle changes can help in reducing stroke's burden among people. Changing to a healthy lifestyle in your 50's also has the potential to reduce or prevent strokes. Those people who had made lifestyle modifications in middle age have reduced their long term risk of total stroke by nearly a quarter. The ischemic stroke, the most common type of stroke will also be reduced to one third. 

They studied the impact of smoke risk from smoking cessation, exercising 30 minutes daily can lead to weight loss for those people who have overweight. The researchers also studied the impact of making dietary modifications and also emphasize the importance of eating more fish, nuts, whole grains, less red meat, and also less alcohol. During the 26 years follow-up, the researchers had found that 4.7 percent of people with no lifestyle interventions had a stroke, 24 had an ischemic stroke and 0.7 percent had a hemorrhagic stroke. Engaging in non - dietary interventions such as smoking cessation, daily exercise, and weight loss are estimated to reduce the risk of total stroke by 25 percent and ischemic stroke by 36 percent. Sustained dietary modifications are so good and they can reduce the risk of total stroke by 23 percent.

Researchers also found out that increasing the consumption of fish and nut with reducing unprocessed red meat consumption has a positive impact on reducing the risk of stroke and the person stay fit. However, the degree of impact from these dietary changes will not be as big as those achieved through physical activity, smoking cessation, and maintaining a healthy weight. There are other studies to propose or support changes in stroke risk from lifestyle and dietary modifications concerning men in the population. The estimates also show that exercising 30 minutes or more than that daily can reduce the risk of stroke by 20 percent.
