In brief: Confused

There is coronary disease and there is cerebrovascular disease but there is no "coronary cerebrovascular disease".
However, the common denominator is arteriosclerosis and diet plays a very important role in its cause and prevention.

In brief: Kinda

Coronary refers to the heart.
Cerebrovascular refers to the brain. They aren't related other than diet can effect the buildup of plaques in the vessels that can lead to heart disease and strokes. So the answer is yes, diet can effect vascular disease, including the heart and brain.
