Movie stars aren't immune...

The day after Oscar night, perhaps it's fitting to check a recent WebMD story about how stroke takes a toll on Hollywood stars:

Pop quiz: What do Bette Davis, Cary Grant, and Sharon Stone have in common, besides being Hollywood stars of course?

Answer: All are Oscar nominees or winners who suffered a stroke, an event that took a tremendous toll on their and other stars' careers.
 Strokes are equal opportunity events that ... kill, maim and destroy lives. Know stroke signs. Even moderate lifestyle changes can reduce your own risk. Do it even if you're not a movie star.
