A really interesting and serious study on stroke prevention.
Yasuharu Tabara and his team from the Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine were able to demonstrate a statistically significant connection between postural disorders and asymptomatic microangiopathy (also called cerebral small-vessel disease (cSVD)). This is so interesting and important because these early, pathological changes in the brain can go hand in hand with an increased risk of stroke.

I tested it once and everything is probably ok with me. 😉
