When A Little Wine Is A Good Thing

Women who drink moderately have lower stroke risk.

Although there are many confusing, contradictory, and concocted reports it seems that the consensus is in.

When you consider that a women’s risk of dying from heart disease or stroke is greater than her risk of breast cancer,( a recent study found a link between drinking alcohol and an increased risk of breast cancer ) then it is worth entertaining the idea of a glass of red wine as a good thing.

Blood clots can cause the most common type of stroke, so fewer blood clots should mean fewer ischemic strokes. That’s what this new study, which was published online today in the journal Stroke, found.

The researchers also found less risk of hemorrhagic stroke, which is caused by a burst blood vessel in the brain. Earlier studies have found more risk of hemorrhagic stroke, perhaps because a clot would be a good thing there.
