Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability, particularly in low-income and middle-income countries.The two major types of stroke include ischaemic stroke caused by blood clots, which accounts for 85% of strokes, and haemorrhagic stroke or bleeding into the brain, which accounts for 15% of strokes.
How to prevent stroke to a large extend:
If people are physically active -19%
If people take better diets -12%
if smoking is eliminated 10%
9% for cardiac (heart) causes
4% for diabetes
6% for alcohol intake
6% for stress
27% for lipids (the study used apolipoproteins, which was found to be a better predictor of stroke than total cholesterol).
