  • What is a stroke?

  • It is a new style of haircut.

  • No.

  • Through a complex system of arteries, our brain gets a continuous supply of oxygen.

  • Nutrients with the help of blood.

  • The cells of our brain alone use more than 20% of oxygen in our blood.

  • Hence, if the blood doesn't reach the brain cells, they can begin to die, thus giving us a stroke.

  • The most common stroke is Ischemic stroke.

  • Ischemic strokes occur when the arteries supplying blood to the brain get blocked.

  • Like the roads get blocked in a traffic jam, right?

  • Indeed.

  • Due to bad lifestyle choices and stress, fats and cholesterol gradually start building up in the arteries.

  • Thus, narrow them.

  • If this build up ruptures, a clot may form blocking the complete artery.

  • As a result, the brain cells begin to die due to lack of oxygen and nutrients.

  • Thus, giving us an Ischemic stroke.
