High-protein diet 'could reduce stroke risk'

Consuming a diet high in protein could have a beneficial impact on reducing an individual's risk of developing a stroke, a new study has revealed.

Research carried out by Dr Xinfeng Liu from the Nanjing University School of Medicine revealed how eating just one 20g portion of chicken or salmon every day could help to cut a person's stroke risk by as much as 20 per cent.

He highlighted a correlation between the consumption of protein-rich foods and improved cardiovascular function after drawing on data for more than 250,000 people across seven different studies into dietary impact on health.

"These results indicate that stroke risk may be reduced by replacing red meat with other protein sources, such as fish," Dr Liu stated.

Individuals keen to achieve a healthier lifestyle might also benefit from the use of oxygen equipment to fuel their muscles, should they wish to accompany this change in their diet with a new exercise routine.
