    The two-thirds of women consuming the most potassium—more than 1911 mg of potassium per day—were 79% less likely to die from stroke during a 12-year follow-up than the one-third of women consuming the least potassium—less than 1911 mg of potassium per day—according to a 1987 study which followed 859 men and women, aged 50 to 79 years, in Southern California.

    To say this the other way, the one-third of women consuming the least potassium—less than 1911 mg per day—were 4.8 times more likely to die from stroke than the two-thirds of women consuming the most potassium.
