A new study shows an increase in younger adults being treated for strokes.

Researchers looked at 1st time stroke victims over several decades. They saw an increase from 13% in 1993 to 19% in 2005, of people below the age of 55 years old suffering from strokes.

Doctor Adam Kelly joined News10NBC to talk about the study.
