Margaret Thatcher died from a stroke! Don't let this happen to you

by , 08 April 2013

News just in: “Former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has died following a stroke”. It seems the tough Iron Lady lost the battle this earlier today. Don't suffer the same fate - here's a delicious way to lower your risk of strokes.

Margaret Thatcher “had a stroke and died peacefully,” her spokesman, Tim Bell, told Sky News television earlier today.

Her death has come as a shock. After all, until she was diagnosed with dementia back in 2002, has ever really been able to shake the Iron Lady.

But strokes are common. According to the Heart Foundation, around 240 South Africans have a stroke every single day. And while not all of them are fatal, they’re all debilitating and can change your quality of life in an instant.

Luckily, there’s a yummy snack you can eat to lower your stroke risk…

Eat bananas to lower your stroke risk

Research published by the British Medical Association (BMA) found that bananas help to lower blood pressure and lower your risk of strokes by up to 24%, reveals barchester.com.

The reason?

According to the study, “high blood pressure is the single biggest risk factor for stroke.” So making changes to your diet can go a long way to keeping blood pressure under control and help prevent strokes.

Bottom line: Since “a higher potassium level does reduce the risk of stroke, it’s always wisest to take extra potassium if you have high blood pressure, even if it doesn’t lower your actual blood pressure numbers, advises Nutrition & Healing’s Dr Jonathan Wright.

Don’t become one of the one in six people who’ll have a stroke in their lifetime. Add more bananas to your diet to lower your stroke risk – starting today!
