How to prevent a stroke

In order to minimise your risk of a stroke, you have to be a non-smoker.

Smokers are twice as likely to suffer from a stroke than a non-smoker; this is because smoking makes your blood more likely to clot.

Furthermore, smoking contributes to atherosclerosis – the process of arteries becoming “furred up” with fatty deposits.

“Stopping smoking will reduce your risk of a stroke – no matter how old you are or how long you have smoked,” testified the Stroke Association.
