  • Study looks at tribal health

    Oklhoma City, Oklahoma (AP)

    A medical study led by a University of Oklahoma health researcher shows that Indians have more strokes and a higher fatality rate from their first stroke when compared to whites and blacks.

    “Smoking, high blood pressure and a lack of exercise can be major predictors of a stroke, and those risk factors are significant in American Indians,” said Dr. Ying Zhang of the OU Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City.
