THE "C-D-C'S" LATEST ANNUAL-REPORT SHOWS THAT STROKE HAS DROPPED FROM FOURTH- TO FIFTH-PLACE--AMONG AMERICA'S LEADING CAUSES OF DEATH.  HOWEVER, ACCORDING TO THE "AMERICAN STROKE ASSOCIATION", THERE'S STILL ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT:  IT BELIEVES THAT--WHILE THIS IS GREAT NEWS--FAR TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE STILL DYING FROM STROKE--AND TOO MANY ARE SUFFERING GREATLY.  DESPITE THE DROP IN MORTALITY, THE NUMBER OF AMERICANS WHO HAVE A STROKE IS STILL RISING, EACH YEAR--DUE TO THE AGING OF OUR POPULATION, AND DUE TO SIGNS THAT STROKES HAVE INCREASED IN YOUNGER GROUPS.  WHAT MIGHT BE CAUSING THE LOWER DEATH-RATE?  THE ASSOCIATION SAYS THAT THERE ARE MORE STROKE-CENTERS NOW OPERATING IN THE U-S--AND THAT THE ACUTE CARE OF STROKE IS IMPROVING.  HOWEVER, STROKE IS MORE DISABLING THAN FATAL--SO GETTING MEDICAL ATTENTION, AT THE FIRST SIGN, GIVES A PATIENT THE BEST CHANCE FOR RECOVERY.  TO DOWNLOAD THE FREE "SPOT A STROKE 'FAST'"-APP--WHICH INCLUDES THE STROKE WARNING-SIGNS, AND NEARBY HOSPITALS THAT ARE RECOGNIZED FOR STROKE-CARE--VISIT "STROKE-ASSOCIATION"-DOT-ORG.
