All this article mentions is that she had a stroke, no mention of cause. many people don’t know that many strokes are caused by high blood pressure and that if you are aware that you have high blood pressure you can treat it and prevent a stroke. when someone famous dies it would be more helpful to know the cause of the stroke.
