Whole Grain Consumption and Risk of Ischemic Stroke: Results From 2 Prospective Cohort Studies.

​Regular consumption of whole grains may help to ward off an ischemic stroke attack.

This study assessed how increased intake of whole grains affects an individual's chances of developing ischemic stroke. Researchers monitored the diets and rates of occurrence of ischemic stroke in a study population comprising of more than 100,000 men and women with no previous history of cancer, diabetes mellitus, and cardiovascular disease.

Researchers observed that men and women with high intake of whole grains exhibited low risk of developing ischemic stroke. Data from this study suggest that high dietary intake of whole grains may protect individuals against ischemic stroke.
