    “We’re talking about fried foods, french fries, hamburgers, processed meats, hot dogs,” bacon, ham, liver, gizzards, and sugary drinks, said the study’s leader, Suzanne Judd of the University of Alabama in Birmingham.

    People who ate about six meals a week featuring these sorts of foods had a 41 percent higher stroke risk than people who ate that way about once a month, researchers found.

    In contrast, people whose diets were high in fruits, vegetables, grains, and fish had a 29 percent lower stroke risk.

    “It’s a very big difference,” Judd said. “The message for people in the middle is there’s a graded risk,” meaning the likelihood of suffering a stroke rises in proportion to each Southern meal in a week.
