Being healthy and incorporating a daily routine of exercise and eating healthy is important.  Stroke is the third-leading killer in the U.S. after cancer and heart disease.

Dr. Mitchell Elkind recently spoke with New York Daily News and shared 5 tips for healthy vascular living.  Check them out!

1.  Regular exercise: at least 30 minutes three or more times per week.

2.  Avoid excess salt, especially if you have high blood pressure.

3.  Eat lots of fruit, vegetables, and fish; eat red meat no more than once per week.

4.  Alcoholic beverages in moderation: up to one daily for woman and two daily for men.

5.  Visit your doctor at least once a year to have blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar checked.
