    Singaporean parliamentarians need to be better examples of physical fitness for the rest of society to follow.
    After all, all PAP MPs/ MP wannabes are bestowed by PA titles and gahmen funds for their campaign (brainwashing) activities in their post as "advisers to grassroots organisations" (in all INCLUDING opposition MP held constituencies), thus, for Singaporean population/ human resorces to be productive to begin with, such advisers also have to be fine examples of fitness and good health, no?

    "As of 2010, more than half of Singapore's adult population between 18 and 69 years old have high cholesterol, four in 10 are overweight or obese, a quarter have prediabetes or diabetes and about one in five has hypertension."

    1 in 10 stroke patients here aged under 50
    PUBLISHED NOV 19, 2016, 5:00 AM SGT

    While older people are far more likely to suffer a stroke, one in 10 stroke patients in Singapore is under 50 years old.
    Medical conditions such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol can make a person more likely to get a stroke, say doctors.
    Smoking, too, puts you at risk.

    Last Saturday, Singaporean businesswoman Linda Koh was found unconscious in her Hong Kong hotel room. The 36-year-old was rushed to hospital, where she died soon after.
    Doctors subsequently found that she had suffered a stroke.
    Her father, Mr Alan Koh, told Chinese newspaper Shin Min Daily News that his daughter had a history of high blood pressure and was taking medication for it.
    Strokes occur when part of the blood supply to the brain is cut off.
    The latest figures from the National Registry of Disease Office show that there were 6,943 cases of strokes in 2014, up from 6,642 the previous year.
    They are the fourth most common cause of death in Singapore, and tend to occur among men.
    The incidence rate for men aged between 35 and 44 who were admitted to public hospitals for stroke in 2014 was 58 per 100,000 people, compared with 24 per 100,000 for women in the same age group.
    Doctors who spoke to The Straits Times said there are rarely any warning signs before a stroke happens.
    "Some strokes may be preceded by severe headaches or neck pain," said Dr Carol Tham, a consultant from the National Neuroscience Institute's neurology department. "Unfortunately, most patients do not have any warning symptoms before the stroke occurs."
    During a stroke, people often experience difficulty speaking and walking, weakness on one side of their bodies, and even temporary blindness.
    Dr Ho King Hee, a neurologist at Gleneagles Hospital Singapore, said strokes that result in sudden death are likely to be due to bleeding in the brain from a ruptured blood vessel, rather than a blockage.
    "If you are older, it means that there is more time for damage (to the blood vessels) to accumulate," he said. "But a stroke can happen at any age."
    He advises people who have conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes to keep them in check.
    Dr Tham added that doctors may also prescribe blood-thinning medication for people whose blood tends to clot.
    "If a person has any symptoms of stroke... he should seek treatment at the emergency department immediately as early treatment can help to reduce the disability caused by strokes," she said.
    A version of this article appeared in the print edition of The Straits Times on November 19, 2016, with the headline '1 in 10 stroke patients here aged under 50'.

    Healthcare costs in Singapore will sky rocket because many follow their leaders unhealthy lifestyles and suffer similar medical fates. They then expect the same level of treatments as Minister Khaw BW went through and demand that treatments costs less than the $8 that Minister Khaw paid.

    Now they are jailing people who do not pay medishield-life premiums for those who don't pay because they need to raise cash for literally thousands of bypasses and dialysis, all costing tens of thousands much more each than the $8 KBW paid.

    Very soon, Singapore will be a nation that people avoid like plague where immigration is concerned.
    But many specialist will set up clinic here to treat politicians who have the most expensive medical insurance plans possibly gahmen paid and charge them out of pocket $1, so that they can make news once again.
