A Drink A Day Raises Your Risk Of Stroke

Then again, other studies say...

Okay everyone, this new study says that just a drink a day increases your risk for having a stroke after following 500,000 people for 10 years and analyzing their health and drinking habits. That said, how many studies do we have that suggest a glass of wine a day is good for you for other reasons? Before you ask, yes, a small glass of wine was included under the umbrella term "drink," so some of those stroke-havers may have been drinking daily wine. 

Perhaps we need more specific studies. According to these findings, the risk increases to 38% for every half bottle of wine per day. I'd have to agree that half a bottle of wine a day probably isn't a good idea for you, but after reading studies that say a glass a day is good, what are we supposed to believe?

Like just about everything on this planet, it's probably likely that it's both good and bad for us. I have yet to find one thing that's not; even water can be toxic if you drink too much of it!

Do you think it's better to abstain from drinking, drink once a day, or spread out your drinking a bit more?
