Yahoo Health has collected a list of five foods that can cause the damage that leads to stroke. Here are a few of them:
Crackers, chips, and store-bought pastries and baked goods: These are often high in trans fats, which are dangerous artery-blockers and promote inflammation.
Smoked and processed meats: Preservatives such as sodium nitrate and nitrite have been shown by researchers to directly damage blood vessels.
Diet soda: People who drink a diet soda a day may up their stroke risk by 48 percent.
