1 in 4 Globally Will Have a Stroke at Age 25 or Older, According to New Study
One in four people globally will have a stroke at age 25 or older, according to a study published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine. Researchers from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation studied global, regional and country-specific lifetime risks of stroke in 1990 and again in 2016, then compared them. They found that the risk of stroke from the age of 25 onward was 24.9%, up from 22.8% in 1990.
