Today, stroke, or other forms of violations of the cardiovascular system are increasingly common among men 40 years of age. Behind this sad statistics of risk factors, as the experts are very similar to the factors that are responsible for stroke in the elderly.
U.S. researchers from the Medical Health Center in Texas with Finnish experts from Helsinki University Central Hospital studied more than a thousand patients aged from 15 to 49 years and found that the probability of ischemic stroke, as well as its sphere of activity increases dramatically with age.
For example, blockage of blood vessels in the female body is often up to 30 years, whereas men - after 40 years. Were also statistically confirmed and others already known to researchers patterns: in particular, elevated levels of cholesterol in the blood in 60% of men who have had a stroke. Almost half of them (44%) smoked, and 39% on the high blood pressure (hypertension).
So, being in the age group of risk, men are advised to take preventive measures to avoid becoming a victim of one day, bleeding in the brain, which leads either to death or disability leaves man insane. To do this constantly monitor blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels, to monitor the weight and stop smoking.
Neuroscientists confirm that nowadays men of middle age and a man of the older generation is the same risk of stroke. Thus, prevention of stroke, doctors recommend watching since 35 years.
