      Medical statistics show that every 40 seconds somebody in United States has a stroke. The medical community is very focused on finding ways to prevent strokes as much as possible, due to the fact that it can cause death, paralysis, weakness, limited mobility, speech, thinking, memory.

Diet is considered one of the significant factors that can assist in prevention based on the fact that a healthy, balanced diet helps maintain a good metabolic health. Some studies show that “higher consumption of fruits and vegetables, dietary fiber, and dairy foods (milk, yogurt, cheese) was associated with lower risk of ischemic stroke. Higher intake of nuts, olive oil, and fish have all been associated with lower risk of stroke” (Diet and Stroke Prevention, 2020).

Other studies consider other common approaches such as physical exercise or maintaining a healthy weight, but others look into some uncommon factors such as herpes zoster and the importance of herpes zoster vaccination since “recent literature suggests that individuals who develop herpes zoster are at an increased risk of developing a stroke” (Klaric, J. S., Beltran, T. A., & McClenathan, B. M., 2019).
