Guys I was reading about the high incidence of strokes in Taiwanese population. It is a scary thought, as a stroke leaves you practically like a baby for a long time, if you're lucky. I've seen my neighbors go through it and they are not so elderly and recovery is slow and painful. Is this a concern for us expats living here? Will enviromental factors contribute to our demise by stroke?
I udnerstand that it could be realted to teh fact that high blood pressure goes so untreated here, as it is asynthomatic until it is too late, and most of the population are unaware of this disease until it is too late. Plus, ther eis the pollution factor contributing to strokes. So, can we avoid this fate?
