If you want to reduce your risk for stroke, grab an apple, pear or other white fleshed fruit or vegetable, according to the new study. The scientists found that people who regularly ate white fleshed fruits and vegetables had a 52% lower risk of stroke compared to those who didn't.  Interestingly, the researchers found that adding as little as a couple of apple slices to your daily diet could reduce your stroke risk by 9%.  Other foods in the white category include bananas, cauliflower, chicory, and cucumbers, but not potatoes, which are cosidered a starch.  While white fleshed fruits and vegetables may help curb stroke risk, another study found that consuming green leafy vegetables can reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
