    Default Mediterranean Diet and Stroke Protection

    Beth Levine

    Each year, more than 795,000 people in the United States have a stroke and approximately 140,000 die from that stroke according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. If you assume it’s only a problem for senior citizens in their seventies and eighties, you would be wrong. In fact, the populations who have seen the largest increases in the incidence of stroke in recent years are much younger—even children and young adults. The good news, however, is that new research suggests there is an easy way to help protect ourselves from stroke, and all it takes is some dietary changes.

    Montel Williams--former Marine, boxer, bodybuilder, & snowboarder--is an interesting dude. At one time he weighed 220 lbs., and looked like he was on steroids. By his own admission, he pushed himself far too hard and too long. About 18 yrs. ago, he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Despite his MS, he continued doing all the things the doc said he shouldn't. He's lucky he hasn't suffered more than a stroke. Good news: he is an advocate and frequent user of "medical" marijuana.
