I read a headline this morning reading: “one glass of wine increases stroke risk by 1/3”.
With all the positive benefits of wine we see in the research, could it really be that one glass of wine just so happens to also cause us harm by increasing our stroke risk by 1/3?
I wanted to take a moment to clear up the ACTUAL results, and to
provide you with the results of this new study in the journal Stroke, instead of scare-mongering you in the headline with something that is misleading or inaccurate.
It is important to note that the population involved in this study was middle aged individuals who were followed over a period of 43 years until either their death or old age.
