Alcohol drinkers are highly liable to suffer from stroke.
This study investigated the hypothesis that alcohol consumers are likely to experience a stroke attack. Researchers compared alcohol drinking habits with stroke incidence in a study group made of 22,691 Chinese men and women.
The team of investigators discovered that the more alcohol people drank, the greater their risk of having a stroke. "High alcohol consumption was associated with increased risk of stroke in both males and females," the authors wrote.
