Study: One drink per day could increase stroke risk


RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A new study finds that drinking just one alcoholic drink per day could increase a person’s risk of stroke. 

CNN reports that the study from the journal “Lancet” found one to two drinks per day can increase people’s stroke chances by 10 to 15 percent. 

When the number of drinks goes up to four per day, the risk increased by 35 percent. 

One drink in the study was classified as a bottle of beer, a small glass of wine or a single serving of spirits.
