The most important thing is time. Many changes take place in a person's body in a moment. As soon as a person has a stroke, their brain tissue and millions of neurons begin to be affected within seconds. Nothing can be more precious than time.

A research report by authors Jayaraj Durai Pandian and Pauline Sudhanbo on stroke epidemiology and stroke care services in India is included in PubMed Central. According to this, developing countries like India are facing a double burden of communicable and non-communicable diseases. Stroke is one of the leading causes of death and disability in India. The estimated prevalence rate of stroke ranges from 84-262/100,000 in rural areas. In urban areas, the rate is 334-424/100,000. Based on recent population-based studies, this rate is 119-145/100,000. Kolkata has the highest death rate of 42% due to stroke.

Why does a Stroke occur?

In India, due to no activity and stagnation lifestyle, and genetic diseases, people are at increased risk of stroke. A stroke is usually caused by a lack of oxygen.

When the blood circulation of the brain is affected due to any reason, then a stroke occurs. The attack comes suddenly inside the brain. Due to this, the blood vessels supplying blood to the brain burst. Due to this, there is a blockage of blood in the veins of the brain.

We are unaware of these things, due to which there is a lack of oxygen. People eat spicy and spicy food and lie down and use mobile phones for hours. This leads to an unhealthy lifestyle which increases the chances of stroke.
