Hey ladddiesss!

Don't feel bad about unwinding after a hard day's work with a glass of wine, beer, or a cocktail (key is "a", not five) because research has found that "light-to-moderate alcohol consumption was associated with a lower risk of total stroke."

Although the health benefits of consuming moderate alcohol have been associated with lowering the risk of heart disease, there was no sturdy evidence it did the same for strokes. After following more than 80,000 women for 26 years, that evidence has arrived.

The study, published in the journal Stroke, has determined that moderate drinking reduced the risk of blood clots, a cause of ischemic stroke. This may be because alcohol boosts HDL, which is good cholesterol, and good cholesterol reduces the risk of blood clots.

This is good news, just don't use it as an excuse to become an alcoholic, please!
