In my view, many people's awareness of the risk of getting a stroke and how to improve your chances of not getting one is quite low. Here are some facts from the World Stroke Compaign website:
- One in six people will have a stroke at sometime in their lives.
- Stroke is responsible for more deaths annually than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined.
- Stroke is the second leading cause of death for people above the age of 60 years.
- Eat a healthy diet
- Exercise regularly
- Avoid smoking
- Don't drink too much alcohol.
