Stroke. All about the numbers.
Stroke Facts, the numbers don't lie!
Stroke is a leading cause of disability in the United States. The American Heart Association (AHA) estimate that almost 800,000 Americans have a stroke each year, and almost 130,000 Americans die from it.
Stroke is the leading preventable cause of death in the U.S.
Each year in Canada, 62,000 strokes occur. It’s a leading cause of death and a major cause of disability. Strokes have a devastating impact on Canadian families, and can change lives in a second. Heart & Stroke is working to save lives with faster, better emergency response and treatment for stroke and cardiac arrest.
Stroke occurs approximately 152,000 times a year in the UK; that is one every 3 minutes 27 seconds.
If you, or your loved one suffer a Stroke, and you wonder why me? Look at these numbers:
First-time incidence of stroke occurs almost 17 million times a year worldwide; or to put it in perspective, one every two seconds.
Most of the time, people don't think about Stroke, until it happens.
If you think about it, it's like going out in a boat, and thinking about the life vests, when the boat is sinking. Which is like shutting the barn door, after the cow is gone.
Stroke Survival should start with PREVENTION.
For me, that's a little to late, but I now work hard to prevent another one. By sticking to an exercise program, which changes with the seasons, eat properly, try not to stress the small stuff and listen to my body when it needs to rest.
I also talk to my family and friends, warning them of the signs and what they should and should not be doing.
