  • STUDY STATES THAT DRINKING ALCOHOL IN ANY AMOUNT MORE THAN TWICE A WEEK INCREASES CHANCE OF STROKE THREEFOLD FOR MEN

THE NATIONAL POST REPORTED ABOUT A STUDY PUBLISHED IN THE ACTA NEUROLOGICA SCANDINAVICA  OUT OF FINLAND ON 8/03/2014 FOUND THAT MEN WHO DRANK MORE THAN TWICE A WEEK HAD A THREEFOLD INCREASE IN DEATH RATE DUE TO STROKE COMPARED TO MEN WHO DID NOT CONSUME ALCOHOL AT ALL.  A VERY INTERESTING PART OF THE STUDY WAS THAT THE AMOUNT OF ALCOHOL CONSUMED HAD LITTLE CORRELATION.  MAYBE THE SAYING THAT 2 GLASSES OF WINE PER DAY MAY NOT BE GOOD FOR YOU AFTER ALL.

IT FOUND THAT THE MORE A MAN DRINKS, THE MORE LIKELY YOU ARE TO DIE FROM A STROKE.  THE STUDY WAS CONDUCTED FROM OVER 2,500 MIDDLE-AGED MEN OVER A 20 YEAR PERIOD THROUGH A SURVEY CHARTING HOW MANY TIMES THEY DRANK AND HOW MUCH.  IN ADDITION TO BEING LINKED TO A VARIETY OF DISEASES, EXCESSIVE DRINKING HAS ALSO RECENTLY BEEN LINKED TO MEMORY LOSS IN MIDDLE-AGED MEN AND HIGHER BLOOD PRESSURE.
