A Drink A Day, Keeps the Doctor A’Stay


A new study finds that just one alcoholic drink a day could increase the risk of having a stoke. 

The study, published in the Lancet, revealed that having one to two drinks a day increased the chance of a stroke by 10 to 15 percent. 

When the number went to four drinks, the risk grew 35 percent. 

Researchers defined “one drink” as either a bottle of beer, one small glass of wine, or a single measure of spirits. 

The Lancet is a weekly peer-reviewed general medical journal.
