(Best Syndication News) - Strokes are happening more often at a younger age, according to a new study. The researchers published their findings in the October 10, 2012 online issue of Neurology.

Study author, Brett Kissela, MD, MS, with the University Of Cincinnati College Of Medicine in Ohio and a Fellow of the American Academy of Neurology, suggests that the increasing stroke numbers in younger people may be related to diabetes, obesity, and high cholesterol. Another reason may be from improved MRI imaging, which could lead to a better diagnosis for stroke.
