  • 34 (9.6%) had a history of stroke.

  • The mean number of preexisting diseases was 2.7 (SD, 1.6).

Wisdom is better than strength. Nevertheless the poor man's wisdom is despised. And his words are not heard. Words of the wise, spoken quietly, should be heard. Rather than the shout of a ruler of fools.
