In brief: Stroke prevention

Strokes are caused by multiple factors, high blood pressure, elevated lipids, family history and even some heart problems.
Risks such as blood pressure and elevated lipids can be modified or treated with diet or meds. Other risks such as family history really can't be changed. Also taking one Aspirin daily has been shown to lower an individuals risk of stroke.

In brief: Blood pressure

Getting blood pressure down to normal is the most powerful prevention method.
Reducing other risk factors such as obesity, smoking, and high cholesterol will help.
