On average, someone suffers a stroke every 45 seconds, someone dies of a stroke every three minutes and 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year.

I once had a manager tell me the reason he didn't exercise is because he calculated he would spend more time exercising than the amount of time exercising would extend his life.

This supposed to be new news?

This fact has not changed in well over a decade.

It's news to a lot of people, even if it's twenty years old. I'd wager that most people wouldn't be able to tell you the different types of strokes, not to mention the total costs of strokes.

I'd bet most people don't care either.

I don't remember managing you! I've said the same thing. I try to do USEFUL exercise, because it has more than a palliative benefit, but you won't find me on an exercise machine.

Kind of ironic, but Gary Coleman died after suffering an intracranial hemorrhage.

Another high profile stoke victim is Kirk Douglas who had a stoke in 1996. Douglas describes his dark period in his book “My Stroke of Luck.” “One minute a pampered movie star, the next a babbling idiot,” he says.
