The study has revealed that strokes are occurring at a faster rate among the younger lot with people below the age of 55 making up a greater percentage of all strokes.

The increase is an alarming trend because strokes in younger people translate to "greater lifetime disability," says lead author Brett Kissela, a physician at the University Of Cincinnati College Of Medicine in Ohio and a fellow of the American Academy of Neurology.
