  journal={European Journal of Epidemiology},
Observational studies suggest an association between dietary fiber consumption and risk of stroke, but the results are inconclusive. The authors conducted a meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies to evaluate the relation between dietary fiber consumption and stroke risk and mortality. Relevant studies were identified by searching PubMed, Embase, and ISI Web of Science through February 2013. We included prospective studies that reported relative risks (RRs) with 95 % confidence intervals… 

Association between fiber intake and ischemic stroke risk: a meta-analysis of prospective studies

High dietary fiber intake was associated with a reduced risk of ischemic stroke, especially for cereal fiber, vegetable fiber, fruit fiber, and water-soluble fiber intakes.

Quantitative analysis of dietary protein intake and stroke risk

It is suggested that moderate dietary protein intake may lower the risk of stroke.

Nut consumption and risk of stroke

A meta-analysis of prospective studies to assess the relation between nut consumption and stroke risk and mortality observed a trend toward an inverse association between higher nut Consumption and stroke mortality, although it is not significant.

Dietary cholesterol intake and stroke risk: a meta-analysis

Higher cholesterol intake has no association with the overall stroke risk in males, and age and body mass index affect the relationship between dietary cholesterol intake and stroke risk, however, the association between higher dietary cholesterol and strokerisk in males remains unclear.

Dietary fiber intake is inversely associated with stroke incidence in healthy Swedish adults.

Findings indicate that intake of dietary fiber, especially fruit and vegetable fibers, is inversely associated with risk of stroke.

Role of diet in stroke incidence: an umbrella review of meta-analyses of prospective observational studies

Evidence of high/moderate certainty suggested that the intake of processed meat, fruits, coffee, tea, magnesium, and dietary fiber was associated with ischemic stroke risk, while consumption of tea,ruits, and vegetables was relevant to hemorrhagic stroke susceptibility.

Dietary Fiber Intake and Risk of Stroke

Findings from meta-analyses of randomized controlled trials show that fiber supplementation has a weak to modest beneficial effect on blood pressure as well as on total and low-density cholesterol concentrations.

BMI Affects the Relationship between Long Chain N-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid Intake and Stroke Risk: a Meta-Analysis

It is revealed that higher long chain n-3 PUFA intake is inversely associated with risk of stroke morbidity and mortality with BMI and sex as key factors influencing this risk.

Dietary fiber and health outcomes: an umbrella review of systematic reviews and meta-analyses.

Dietary recommendations that promote higher fiber intake as part of a healthy diet are supported, and evidence for excess significance bias is evaluated.

Stroke and food groups: an overview of systematic reviews and meta-analyses

Clinicians and policy makers could inform clinical practice and policy based on this overview of the range and validity of the reported associations of food groups with stroke risk to support the beneficial effect of specific foods on stroke outcome.



Dietary fiber intake and stroke risk: a meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies

Findings of this meta-analysis indicate a significant inverse dose-response relationship between dietary fiber intake and risk of stroke.

A prospective study of dietary fiber intake and risk of cardiovascular disease among women.

Dietary fiber intake and risk of cardiovascular disease in the Japanese population: the Japan Public Health Center-based study cohort

Higher total dietary fiber was associated with reduced risk of CVD in Japanese non-smokers and was inversely associated with the incidence of stroke, either cerebral infarction or intracerebral hemorrhage in women.

Long-term intake of dietary fiber and decreased risk of coronary heart disease among women.

The hypothesis that higher fiber intake, particularly from cereal sources, reduces the risk of CHD is supported, and the association between long-term intake of total dietary fiber as well as fiber from different sources and risk ofCHD in women is examined.

Dietary fiber and fiber-rich food intake in relation to risk of stroke in male smokers

A beneficial effect of the consumption of fruits, vegetables and cereals on stroke risk is suggested, after adjustment for cardiovascular risk factors and folate and magnesium intakes.

Dietary potassium and stroke-associated mortality. A 12-year prospective population study.

The hypothesis that a high intake of potassium from food sources may protect against stroke-associated death is supported, independent of known cardiovascular risk factors.

Whole grain consumption and risk of ischemic stroke in women: A prospective study.

In this cohort of 75,521 US women without previous diagnosis of diabetes mellitus, coronary heart disease, stroke, or other CVDs, higher intake of whole grain foods was associated with a lower risk of ischemic stroke among women, independent of known CVD risk factors.

Intake of potassium, magnesium, calcium, and fiber and risk of stroke among US men.

Data are consistent with the hypothesis that diets rich in potassium, magnesium, and cereal fiber reduce the risk of stroke, particularly among hypertensive men, and use of potassium supplements should be carefully monitored and restricted to men taking potassium-losing diuretics.

Dietary fiber and blood pressure: a meta-analysis of randomized placebo-controlled trials.

Increasing the intake of fiber in Western populations, where intake is far below recommended levels, may contribute to the prevention of hypertension.

Carbohydrate intake, glycemic index, glycemic load, and dietary fiber in relation to risk of stroke in women.

It is suggested that high intake of refined carbohydrate is associated with hemorrhagic stroke risk, particularly among overweight or obese women, and high consumption of cereal fiber was associated with lower risk of total and hemorrhagic Stroke.
