Dr. Oz Talks Stroke and Carotid Arteries

Joelle Reizes - October 20, 2011



Every 45 seconds, someone has a stroke. Knowing the risks and taking preventive measures, however, can help you stay on top of your health and avoid stroke. As Life Line Screening believes, such is the Power of Prevention.

dr oz talks strokeIn a recent The Dr. Oz Show segment, Dr. Oz explained how a stroke happens using a really easy-to-understand animation and talked about what causes stroke for most people. Dr. Oz also demonstrated how and why a doctor listens to your carotid arteries.

He also displayed actual ultrasound images to show what it looks like when an artery becomes clogged.

Life Line Screening thought that this The Dr. Oz Show segment should be shared with you! Please watch today. Segments can be accessed at:
