Research are showing stroke cases among US millennials between 18-34 are on the rise.
The data shows a pattern of incidences based on location. More cases on the West and Midwest, and more cases in cities than rural areas.
The South has the highest stroke mortality in the US.
Higher increase in female cases
Reasons are unclear as to the trend we are seeing, but the trend is there are more female cases than the other in recent years.
Obesity, diabetes and physical inactivity are factors. (Where are all the health apps?)
Lessons for other growing economies
The current trends should be used to promote policy and community discussions. Other countries should take note and monitor their young adult population and track stroke cases.
The cost of managing stroke is $5bn per year in Australia.

Want a high paying job but don’t know where to start?
If so, I’m sharing with you the skills that only profitable and growing companies are looking for: AWS skills.
What is AWS? AWS is the cloud infrastructure solution offered by Amazon.com (yes, the big bookstore). They started a long time ago.
Who uses AWS? Only profitable and growing businesses. And because AWS is massive, has a ton of configuration and settings to manage, AWS skills are really hard to come by. In London, contract positions salaries of above $600/hr for 3-6 months are always waiting for the right candidate.
But did I say something about a job? So let’s stop talking. Get yourself armed with AWS skills in a matter of hours with this: the AWS Certified Developer – Associate 2017 program
