    Although there is widespread recognition of a region with high stroke mortality in the southeastern United States that has persisted over the past 50 years (ie, the « stroke belt »), there is little agreement as to its underlying cause (s).

    Herein, we review data supporting 10 potential causes for the stroke belt, and assess : (1) the likelihood that each is the contributing factor to the excess mortality, and (2) areas of investigation where data are lacking and that require additional research efforts.
