Every 45 seconds someone in the United States experiences a stroke. Although an attack can come on suddenly and without warning, some people are more at risk than others. Here are two surprising stroke symptoms you should be aware of:
Do you get migraines frequently and are they accompanied by an aura? If so, according to studies, your risk of a stroke may be 21 percent greater than those who don’t suffer with migraines.
Do you avoid exercise? Experts agree that moderate exercise can lower your risk of a stroke by up to 30 percent. According to researchers, all you need is half an hour of brisk walking five times a week to make a difference. By Robin Westen

See Mr. Divabetic’s nutrition game, Serve, Taste or Trash! You must decide which one you’d serve, which one you’d taste and which one you’d trash.
Before you decide to “trash” a veggie for good, why not try to eat it raw? Raw veggies can be more appetizing than their cooked counterparts to people who aren’t crazy about vegetables. The flavors of raw veggies can be milder than those of cooked ones.
