Strokes increasing among young Americans
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A new study finds that strokes are increasing dramatically among young and middle-aged Americans.
Scientists think it may be due to the rise in obesity. Researchers analyzed Federal records and found the sharpest rise was 51 percent among men aged 15 through 34-years-old.
For women, strokes also rose among that age group, but not as sharply at just 17 percent.
