Sensible drinking staves off strokes,,

Stroke adepts bring to notice that sensible drinking could reduce their risk of suffering a stroke, in advance of the traditional season of excess. In a new leaflet, the Stroke Association says small amounts of alcohol can protect against ischaemic strokes - caused by blood clots blocking arteries - which account for 8 out of 10 cases of the brain attack.//

Alcohol thins the blood, so can prevents the formation of clots. It may also affect the way cholesterol is carried in the bloodstream, reducing the risk of the build-up of fatty deposits in the blood vessel walls. But larger amounts, especially if drunk in one go, increases blood pressure, the main risk factor for stroke.

Dr.Redahan led researchers said:"To help reduce your risk of stroke - watch your alcohol intake - that is no more than 2/3 units a day for women and 3/4 units a day for men. Don't drink every day and try to have at least a couple of alcohol-free days a week."
