Exercise to prevent stroke

Strokes happen around the world, and prevention measures can, too. A reminder that exercise can help prevent stroke:

...(S)trokes can be prevented. By doing 30 minutes of exercise five times a week the risk can be reduced - with walking an excellent and simple form of exercise.

Charity director Tony Richardson said: 'Walking 10,000 steps a day can help to reduce body fat, and to lower and prevent high blood pressure and cholesterol - two major factors for stroke."

As a longtime runner, I know exercise can make a difference.
