You may know or may have known someone in the past who suffered a stroke. I knew an old lady who had a stroke and it was a very disabling and distressing condition for her, especially because she then developed dementia too. And I knew a highly intelligent fellow who had a stroke and suffered greatly because of the frustrations of communication problems. And I remember how hard it was for his wife, a woman of great fortitude, to look after him because she was multiply-disabled herself.
You can greatly reduce your risk of a stroke by significantly lowering your intake of salt and salty food. - It would certainly be worth it.
