Canadian officials have warned the public this week that the sudden rise in strokes among the population is due to the influenza season causing “systemic inflammation.”
Dr. Raj Bhardwaj of the University of Calgary appeared on Canadian state media to explain the alleged link between flu, infection, and stroke.
Theblaze.com reports: Bhardwaj told CBC Calgary News that a stroke is ultimately when “the blood supply to the brain is compromised for some reason. It’s basically a plumbing problem in the pipes that supply blood to your brain. And there’s two things that could go wrong with pipes, right: they can get blocked or they can burst.”
