Top causes of a Stroke

What causes a stroke?  What are some of the causes of a stroke for someone who is on Medicare?  Is it diet, exercise or hereditary?

Re: Top causes of a Stroke

A stroke happens when the blood flow to an area of the brain is cut off.  Atrial fibrillation is one of the top causes of a stroke, along with high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and heart disease.  One can help prevent stroke by following a proper diet and getting plenty of exercise.  Strokes are not hereditary, but if a family member has suffered a stroke some of the risk factors mentioned above could be hereditary.
