Most people (including a lot of doctors) think of a stroke as something that happens to old people. But the rate is increasing among those in their 50s, 40s and even younger.

Not all of these people have a ventricular septal defect. Addressing some of the problems with the American diet may help those that don't. It is well known that the excessive amounts of meat eaten by Americans does lead to strokes, heart attacks and cancer.

I can't help but feel all of the added chemicals and crap like preservatives and etc; that are added into our foods also contribute to many of the health problems today! And then a law is signed to protect MONSONTO from letting people know what is in products!? Makes one wonder if this is a license to kill!!!

thanks for sharing this very important topic....

we need to eat healthier, exercise more, smoke less, drink only in moderation, and see doctors to be checked for high blood pressure ("the silent killer"), diabetes and high cholesterol....especially if we have a family history

I agree with all of the above; it's pretty damn scary.

It is a logical consequence of a westernised lifestyle...
