Stroke is preventable and treatable. Every 45 seconds, someone in the United States experiences a stroke. Stroke is the third leading cause of death and the leading cause of adult disability in this country. Stroke is one of the most preventable of all life-threatening health problems, provided that you pay proper attention to lifestyle and medical risk factors, such as smoking, high blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes.
