The meta-analysis took into consideration 20 studies published over 19 years on the main medical journals and 16,981 cases of ictus were analyzed. 
Data show how a diet high in fruits and vegetables can decrease the risk of cerebrovascular events reducing blood pressure, improving micro vessel circulation and reducing body mass index, cholesterol levels and oxidative stress.
