Scientific American analysis of stroke trends reveals that millennials are having more strokes than ever before — and that risk factors include living in large cities in the Midwest and on the west coast.
Along with higher risk factors based on living in West and
Midwestern urban centers (rather than rural areas), the analysis also
found that strokes in millennial women spiked 32 percent between 2003
and 2012, and 15 percent in men of the same age group.
