NMP #14: Speaking of Stroke

Soon after publishing the previous post, I went to the Nutrition Action Healthletter website seeking ideas for another Nutrition Month topic and ran into Serendipity and Synchronicity. I call them “friends” because they’ve helped me on occasion when I’ve been struggling for inspiration. I was looking for a new subject, but why not write two posts in a row on stroke?

The March cover story, Stroke: How to Avoid a Brain Attack, is freely available to everyone (subscribers and nonsubscribers) as a PDF download.

The article presents up-to-date, critically-reviewed, science-based and practical information and tools dietitians can use with clients or for themselves:

  • Diet recommendations (eat 8 to 10 vegetables and fruits daily; eat fish twice weekly; eat potassium-rich foods)
  • Potassium content of foods
  • Risk factors presented as ones you can change and ones you can’t
  • Simple 3-step calculator to use in determining your stroke risk
