A study is providing emphasis on stress and the serious consequences associated with it.
According to a paper published in JAMA, increased levels of stress may raise the likelihood of ischemic stroke.
The study explored stress at an international level by using data from INTERSTROKE.
“Our message is for people to practice mental and physical wellness at all ages,” the study’s author mentioned in a news release.
“Some of the ways to reduce your risk of stroke are to maintain a healthy lifestyle, exercise regularly, treat high blood pressure and not to smoke.”
“The most effective approach may vary from person to person. It’s important that everyone has a strategy that works for them.”
