Following are some preventive measures to guard against strokes, as prescribed by Shakir Husain, chief of interventional nueurology at New Delhi's Saket City Hospital:

* Lead a simple, yogic life: Eat simple, beat stress through physical and mental exercise by conditioning the body and mind to be calm and flexible.

* Lifestyle modification: Incorporate physical exercise in your daily routine, create happiness and instil peace in your surroundings.

* Dietary regulation: Watch and reduce the intake of saturated fats, consume more fibre and create a good balance of protein, fibre, carbohydrates and polyunsaturated fats.

* Measure your food: One's calorie intake should be with accordance to his or her nature of work. A sedentary worker's calorie intake should be less than that of a field worker.

* Adopt good habits: Control temper and work toward the maintenance of well-balanced and flexible personality. Stop smoking. Reduce, rather avoid, consumption of alcohol.
