Every 40 seconds someone suffers a stroke… every four minutes one of those people die from it. During a year’s time, the National Stroke Association reports that approximately 800,000 new or recurrent strokes happen.
Strokes can be especially scary as there is the potential that it will have a lasting impact. When someone suffers a stroke, the blood flow to parts of the brain are restricted, essentially starving it from oxygen. As a result, it can have lasting effects on one’s memory and muscle control.
The worst part?
It is said that 80% of strokes can be prevented!
