Definite Thing that is Cause Stroke

One study found that high blood pressure, smoking, abdominal fat, poor diet, lack of physical activity, high levels of bad cholesterol, diabetes, drinking too much alcohol, stress, and heart problems account for 90 percent of the causes of stroke.

Research conducted by a team at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada is one of the most comprehensive study of the causes of stroke.

They say, the highest factor was high blood pressure, the risk doubled.

Approximately 150,000 people in the UK suffer a stroke each year and about 67,000 are at risk of death. It is also a major cause of disability.

The study, published in The Lancet and presented at the World Congress of Cardiology in Beijing, examined 3,000 people and 3,000 stroke patients who did not suffer a stroke.

They were questioned about their lifestyles, such as how much they drink, exercise and diet often they do they are measured according to their health and some tests and measurements performed by professionals.

They are categorized drinkers if meraka former drinkers, moderate drinkers of one to 30 drinks a month. More than 30 drinks a month and binge drinking were conducted more than five drinks a day in the previous month.

They are classified into active sportsman if they routinely walks, cycling, gardening, jogging, playing football or vigorous swimming for four hours a week or more.

These findings suggest that smokers double the risk of stroke, poor diet have an increased risk of 35 percent, more than 30 times a month drinking alcoholic beverages have an increased risk of 50 percent, 30 percent the risk of stress and depression by 35 percent.

More activity can reduce the risk of about 30 percent.

Martin O'Donnell, lead author said that the findings suggest that ten simple risk factors associated with 90% of the risk of ischemic stroke and intracerebral haemorrhagic worldwide.

"This research is targeted to reduce blood pressure and smoking, and promote physical activity and healthy foods, which can substantially reduce the risk of stroke," said O'Donnell.

As reported by the Telegraph, Andrea Lane, a spokesman for the Stroke Association said that over the years there are few research studies the causes of stroke, which has identified a number of major risk factors.

"This is research done widely and deeply, to support some previous findings and reflect prevention advice presented by the Stroke Association." (Rebecca Smith / telegraph / sua)
