Lack of stroke awareness is frightening

More evidence that too many people know too little about stroke symptoms, from a recent posting:

The results of the survey were a bit disappointing and some key points are summarized below:

* 93% of those asked knew a couple of the obvious symptoms especially the numbness.
* 59% of those surveyed didn’t recognize the less obvious symptoms such as a severe headache.
* Only 37% of those surveyed recognized all five warning signs of stroke as listed above.
So please, tell someone what to watch out for today.
