Reader's Digest: 3 brain aneurysm risk factors you can control (and 4 you can't)

An article in Reader's Digest on the risk factors of brain aneurysms includes comments from Joseph Broderick, MD, professor in the Department of Neurology and Rehabilitation Medicine at the UC College of Medicine and director of the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute.

Broderick notes that smoking can heighten a person's risk of brain aneurysm and that an estimated 70 to 80% of people who have aneurysms are current or former smokers.
