The observational study involved 5,600 men and women over age 65 who were free of stroke when they started the study.

The participants were followed for four to eight years to record the number and type of strokes that occurred. The people with the lowest amount of potassium in their diet were 1.5 times more likely to have a stroke than those with the highest amount of potassium in their diet.
