Strokes are one of the most debilitating things that can happen to us, but there are actions we can take to reduce the risk. The research reviewed investigated soda consumption and the association with stroke. 84,085 women were followed for 28 years and 43,771 men were followed for 22 years. Data were analyzed on soda consumption and the incident of stroke (Bernstein AM, et al. 2012). The researchers documented that greater consumption of both sugar-sweetened and low-calorie sodas were associated with a significantly higher risk of stroke. Compared with 1 serving of sugar-sweetened soda per day, 1 serving of decaffeinated coffee per day was associated with a 10% lower risk of stroke. When 1 serving of sugar-sweetened soda was compared to 1 serving of caffeinated coffee, the coffee showed a 9% lower risk for stroke. Changing this habit should be a comparatively easy way to reduce your risk of stroke. You can also effectively reduce your risk by eating a certain way, and of course being physically active helps. Following the guidelines outlined in Learn to Eat will help you implement effective food choices.
