DEPRESSION AND STROKE RISK IN MIDDLE AGED WOMEN
A 12-year study published in the American Heart Association in May of 2013 found of over 10,000 middle-aged Australian women found that those who suffered from depression had nearly double the risk of stroke compared to non-depressed women in their same age group. The American Heart Association encourages everyone to learn how to recognize a stroke. Think F.A.S.T: F-Face Drooping. A-Arm Weakness. S-Speech Difficulty. T-Time To Call 9-1-1 (or the appropriate emergency services number if you're outside the United States).
