520    "Did you know we have 100,000 heartbeats a day? That's a 
       lot of wear and tear over the years as we age.  Natural 
       aging leads to artery plaque, high blood pressure, and 
       slower and irregular heartbeats. You can do everything 
       right, and time will still pass. You will still age. While
       you can influence some aspects of aging on your own, some 
       you cannot--at least not without your doctor's help.  
       Fortunately, the biology of aging is no longer mysterious.
       Heart and blood vessel health is knowable, measurable, and
       manageable.  In You Can Prevent a Stroke, Dr. Joshua 
       Yamamoto and Dr. Kristin Thomas help us understand what we
       can do, and what we can ask of our doctors, to manage the 
       effects of aging on our circulation so that we do not have
       a stroke. For years, they have approached patients with 
       the fundamentals learned at The Johns Hopkins Hospital: 
       "Take responsibility for your patient's health, go in-
       depth, have an unswerving commitment to solving problems, 
       be thorough, thoughtful, and have attention to detail."   
       There is no one-size-fits-all solution or magical cure for
       anything. But there are principles that can serve as 
       useful guides for everyone and provide an approach to 
       managing the natural processes that affect us all. Some 
       preventative steps include:    Establishing a relationship
       with a physician  Knowing the health of your heart  
       Knowing the health of your arteries  Knowing the 
       regularity of your heartbeat  Knowing if it's time to take
       a medicine to prevent plaque in your arteries, and whether
       you need a pill to prevent a blood clot   Strokes are 
       usually said to be tragic and random. They are certainly 
       tragic, but they are not random. Strokes can be avoided, 
       and You Can Prevent a Stroke will explain how"--|cProvided
