The rate of stroke is on the rise in Canada

A recent Heart and Stroke Foundation report reveals a 24% increase in stroke cases among people in their 50s1. Unhealthy habits, including poor diet, excess weight, smoking, alcohol consumption, and inactivity, contribute to stroke risks. Fortunately, awareness and education can boost survival rates. Recognizing the early symptoms—blurred vision, headache, speech, and balance issues—is crucial. Act fast! Call 911 if you or someone you know experiences these signs. Early diagnosis and treatment significantly enhance chances of survival and recovery.
