Under our tab UNDERSTANDING STROKE, you will learn that stroke is divided to two basic types. The first is ischemic stroke which is cause by an obstruction of a blood vessel supplying oxygen and nutrients to the brain. The second form of stroke is called hemorrhagic stroke, which is caused by a rupture of a blood vessel in the brain. This ruptured blood vessel cannot supply oxygen, glucose and other nutrients to the brain.
Both forms of stroke are largely preventable. In fact, over 80% of all stokes can be prevented by nutritional strategies and other lifestyle modifications. To protect yourself and your loved ones, learn more about the Controllable Risk Factors of stroke.
