Nearly 17 million people worldwide suffer from stroke each year. But nearly half of those strokes could be prevented just by eliminating one thing.
The Third National Health and Nutrition Survey found that any level of lead in the blood that exceeds 2 mcg/dL significantly increased the risk for heart attack, stroke, and death. And here’s the really scary part… nearly 40 percent of Americans have lead levels high enough to increase their risk of stroke by 89 percent and their risk of heart attack by 151 percent!
