Our expert says:
Strokes are usually caused by blood clots or bleeding in the brain. Blood clots can be caused by high cholesterol, heart valve abnormalities or too thick blood. Bleeding can be caused by too thin blood (like people on Warfarin medication). People who drink a lot and have liver disease can develop a problem with their coagulation factors that can cause bleeding. see http://www.medicinenet.com/stroke/article.htm
