10 Causes of Stroke You Need to Know


Just like smoking, alcoholism has also become a well-known habit in the world. With an irregular heartbeat, you are undoubtedly on your way to get a stroke and what triggers irregular heartbeat is alcohol. So, with you taking in excessive alcohol, you experience bouts of irregular heartbeat and increase your risk of having a stroke. Irregular heartbeat, otherwise called atrial fibrillation by medical practitioners, causes blood clots to form in the heart, and when these clots move to the brain, they block the blood vessels that supply blood to your brain. You automatically suffer a stroke when this happens. [3]
