Defend Yourself Against Stroke
8/6/2012
Stroke is the third leading cause of death and also America’s biggest crippler. Every 45 seconds, someone in the U.S. is stricken. 
How can you make sure stroke doesn’t happen to you? By taking action today you can dramatically cut your risk of stroke, say top doctors.

“The bottom line is that stroke is preventable,” says Dr. Joseph Broderick, research director of the University of Cincinnati’s Neuroscience Institute and vice chair of the American Heart Association’s Stroke Council.

Most strokes are the result of blood clots, which occur when blood vessels in the brain and neck are narrowed by atherosclerosis, the same disease process that causes heart attacks.
