Strokes are a lot more common in the U.S. than many may think. Every 40 seconds in the U.S. someone suffers from a stroke, and every 4 minutes someone in the U.S. dies from a stroke. A few risk factors for example are smoking, excessive alcohol use, and family history. Some may not know what to look out for when it comes to suffering from a stroke. Some signs and symptoms to look out for are headache, trouble walking, numbness in the face, trouble seeing, and difficulty involving speech. The purpose of this project is to make people more aware of how their health decisions may effect them in the long run, and specifically risk factors associated with strokes.
