ABSTRACT

Stroke is considered as the most common disease that led to death among older individuals in many countries today around the world. Risk factors of stroke have been grown annually, which led to health problems that affect the quality of life. Hence, modification of these risk factors became very urgent for the prevention of stroke through different strategies that might have an effective and proactive impact on stroke. In this study, we used an online searching process to obtain scientific articles related to our subject. The searching process involved searching through scientific websites, such as Google Scholar and PubMed. We obtained 15 articles related to the current subject; of them, eight were excluded as they were duplicate articles and may not focus on the current subject, so only seven articles were included. The study concludes that an active lifestyle could lead to an extreme reduction of stroke risks, through different modifications, such as regular physical activity, quitting smoking, weight loss, reducing alcohol consumption, healthy nutrition, in addition to a healthy diet. Effective advances and proactive education of the public are very important and urgent for alleviating and preventing the burden of stroke.
