These two items appeared on social media recently. I'm posting them here for you to be aware, and please draw your own conclusions.

The first image here features a bus advert from Durham in Ontario, Canada. It does speak for itself of course. Yes children do apparently have strokes but they are rare.

"Pediatric stroke is a rare condition affecting one in every 4,000 newborns and an additional 2,000 older children each year ...   It is a brain injury caused by the interruption of blood flow to part of the brain. Stroke can be caused by a blocked blood vessel (ischemic stroke) or by bleeding in the brain (hemorrhagic stroke). The brain needs a constant supply of oxygen, which is carried by the blood. When blood flow stops, brain cells start to die" says John Hopkins Health.

I cannot say though that I have ever seen such an advert on a bus before. Are they set to become more common?

 This second item features changes imminent in health care, and is also from Ontario. Note the caption: "In over thirty years they have never needed a stroke code or a standby team to treat strokes in kids. I wonder why kids are getting strokes".

Interesting timing given all stops are being pulled right now for early childhood approval of the CV VX which we've all noticed (how could we not?) appears to be associated with blood clotting and associated conditions, all on the increase.
