New Study Shows Fiber Intake Reduces Stroke Risk

Veganism’s fiber-rich foods may help keep strokes at bay.

A recent study to be published in the May issue of Stroke discusses the results of eight studies conducted in Japan, the US, Australia, and Europe between 1990 and 2012. A common finding was that consuming more dietary fiber such as those found in whole-wheat pasta, veggies, nuts, and fruit lowered the risk of stroke. Victoria Burley, the study’s co-author, states everyone should eat 25 to 30 grams of fiber per day, or the equivalent of one serving of fiber-rich cereal, plus one serving of whole-grain pasta and five servings of fruits or nuts throughout the day.
