Many people at risk for heart attack are also at higher risk for stroke, since the underlying disease process - atherosclerosis - can block blood flow to the brain, just as it does in the heart.

As a result, they can have a mild stroke and not know it.

For most of us, personal choice largely determines whether a stroke lies ahead. Guidelines on the prevention of stroke suggest a healthy lifestyle can cut the risk of having one by 80 percent. No drug, device, or other intervention can come close to that.
