Want to avoid a stroke? Don’t eat these two foods.

6a00e55255b4628834019b00502860970c-200wiA number of recent reports show a dramatic rise in strokes in young and middle aged Americans. That included one report of a 51% rise in strokes in males 14- 34 years old (K Doheney Health Day). Causes were not found in the study, but explanations offered included increased obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, salt consumption, and recreational drug use.

I suggest that anything that increases fibrin formation and clotting within the blood vessels, is a possible culprit. Increased high temperature cooked foods (fried foods), sugar, and other substances which lead to the process known as “glycation” may be factors in this change.

If you want to avoid an increased risk of having a stroke, avoid or eliminate sugary and fried foods from your diet. (Oh, and doing this can also help treat acne.)

To your health,
