Are you male?    
Do you smoke or have a long history of smoking?    
Do you have an irregular heartbeat?    
Do you have high cholesterol or do you take medication for high cholesterol?    
Is there an immediate family history of stroke or vascular disease? (mother, father, siblings, children)?    
Do you exercise less than 3 times per week for 20-30 minutes at a time?
