Thousands of people die from heart attacks every year because they don’t receive medical treatment in a timely manner. Since warning signs vary from person to person, the best cure is prevention. Unlike a heart attack, a stroke originates in the brain, causing a sudden loss of brain function. A stroke can leave you without the ability to reason, speak, see, move, read or write. Similar factors contribute to both heart attacks and strokes. It is important to recognize what variables put you at risk, and work towards minimizing them.
