I don't claim to follow rap or hip-hop but Nathaniel D. Hale, better known as Nate Dogg, passed away yesterday at age 41. No details were given regarding cause of death but USA Today did report that he had suffered strokes in 2007 & 2008. In fact, he suffered his first stroke at 38 years old and his second at 39 years old, only to die 3 years later. Now, I don't know about you, but despite being a geriatrician, I think of stroke as being a condition of the elderly. Not that it's any less painful in our (grand)parents generation, but to lose a talent with so many more years to offer us is truly sad. We can't prevent all strokes, but we can certainly minimize our risk if we adopt healthier lifestyles, at the risk of putting out a shameless self-plug. Let's do our best to maintain our ability to complete our life goals. And let's not leave this Earth prematurely.
