Drinking “moderately” can STILL increase the risk of stroke, says research

(Natural News) A recent study published in The Lancet revealed that even moderate alcohol consumption can increase the risk of stroke. The study – a collaboration between researchers from the University of Oxford and universities in China – goes against the grain of earlier studies that say modest alcohol consumption has some benefits to a person’s health. In particular,...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Many cohort studies have explored the relation between tea consumption and stroke risk; however, the conclusions have been inconsistent. In addition, evidence is lacking in China, where the patterns of tea consumption and main types of tea consumed differ substantially from those in high-income countries. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to systematically assess the association of tea consumption with the risk of stroke based on a Chinese large-scale cohort study. METHODS: A total of 487,377 participants from the China Kadoorie Biobank were included in the present study. Detailed information abou...

Nearly half of all premature deaths may be due to unhealthy lifestyle choices, such as insufficient exercise, poor diet, and smoking. These risk factors increase the risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attack, and stroke. The good news is that lifestyle changes can make a difference. In a study analyzing over 55,000 people, those with favorable lifestyle habits such as not smoking, not being obese, engaging in regular physical activity, and eating a healthy diet lowered their heart disease risk by nearly 50%. The American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA) recently published guide...

Resumo O objetivo foi analisar o padr ão de consumo de álcool entre idosos (60 anos ou mais) brasileiros e sua associação com fatores sociodemográficos, hábitos de vida e condições de saúde. Trata-se de um estudo transversal, realizado com 10.537 idosos (90,1%) participantes da Pesquisa Nacional de Saúde de 2013. O consumo de bebidas alcoólicas foi classificado em não uso, uso leve/ moderado e uso de risco. Utilizou-se o modelo de regressão multinomial para o estudo dos fatores associados. A prevalência para uso leve/moderado e...

to Tomonori Okamura The present study sought to clarify if being conscious of water intake (CWI) is associated with sufficient non-alcohol drink (NAD) intake. We used data of healthy participants without diabetes, aged 40–74 years, in the Kobe Orthopedic and Biomedical Epidemiologic (KOBE) study. The association between being CWI and NAD intake was evaluated by multivariate linear regression analyses after adjusting for age, sex, surveyed months (seasons), alcohol drinking, health-awareness life habits, socioeconomic factors, serum osmolarity, estimated daily salt intake, and reasons for NAD intake. Among 9...

Lindgren Obesity traits are causally implicated with risk of cardiometabolic diseases. It remains unclear whether there are similar causal effects of obesity traits on other non-communicable diseases. Also, it is largely unexplored whether there are any sex-specific differences in the causal effects of obe sity traits on cardiometabolic diseases and other leading causes of death. We constructed sex-specific genetic risk scores (GRS) for three obesity traits; body mass index...
