STROKE : 4 simple signs that can save anyone ‘s life

9 Jan

Stroke has a new indicator! Blood Clots/Stroke – They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue:

During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall – she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) …she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

Jane’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital – (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don’t die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only takes a minute to read this.

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke…totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough. 

RECOGNIZING A STROKE : Just remember theses ‘3’ steps, STR :

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

S *Ask the individual to SMILE.

T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK  SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)

(i.e. Chicken Soup)

R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

******VERY IMPORTANT : There is now an additional new sign of a stroke added to the 3 signs : Ask the person to ‘stick’ out his tongue. If the tongue is

‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.


Flame retardant in Gatorade? Really?

OMG Flame retardant in Gatorade??? How insane is that ??? Well that’s what I found out when https://www.change.org sent me an alert via my email. BTW this is a great website to sign up to and stay informed and on top of any subjects that matters to you. You can even create your own petition and post it it on Face book and other sharing medias.

So BVO (brominated vegetable oil) a controversial flame retardant chemical.

 BVO is banned in Europe and Japan, but in the U.S. it’s patented by many chemical companies as a flame retardant–and it’s used in some fruit-flavored drinks, like Gatorade Orange.
