'No longer an affliction of old age'

Something I've preached from time to time on this blog, here's yet another piece of information that confirms it: Even if you're not elderly, be aware of stroke signs and symptoms, and try to reduce your stroke risks. It can happen at any age, so read it and act:

Stroke may be striking at a younger age:
"Stroke is no longer an affliction of old age," said lead researcher Timothy J. Wolf, an instructor of occupational therapy and neurology and investigator for the Cognitive Rehabilitation Research Group at Washington University School of Medicine, in St. Louis. "People in the working ages of life are having strokes with greater regularity than ever before."
