In Episode #97, I sat back down with Drs Dean and Ayesha Sherzai to talk about strokes – we discussed the different types of strokes (ischemic and haemorrhagic), the prevalence of strokes, risk factors for strokes, eating to lower your stroke risk, and much more. I love these guys; they are absolutely brilliant, and I am sure you will think so too.
