Stroke risk cut by managing stress

9th August 2007

Researchers from the University of Cambridge have suggested that coping well with stress can cut the risk of a stroke by almost a quarter.

The scientists based their findings, published in the journal Stroke, on a seven-year study of more than 20,000 people. The study recorded 452 strokes and more than 100,000 stressful life events among the participants and found that those who were able to adapt more rapidly to stressful circumstances in their lives had a 24% lower risk of stroke.
