While it is known that excess drinking is harmful for health, a new study suggests that even consuming one or two alcoholic drinks a day can raise stroke risks, challenging previous claims.

The study, published in The Lancet journal, showed that alcohol directly increases blood pressure and the chances of having a stroke.

It dismissed the previous claims that 1-2 alcoholic drinks daily might protect one against stroke, adding that every four additional alcoholic drinks per day increased the risk of having a stroke by about 35 per cent.

“Stroke is a major cause of death and disability. This study has shown that stroke rates are increased by alcohol. This should help inform personal choices and public health strategies,” said Liming Li, Professor at the Peking University in China.

“There are no protective effects of moderate alcohol intake against stroke. Even moderate alcohol consumption increases the chances of having a stroke,” said Zhengming Chen, Professor at the University of Oxford in the UK.

According to the World Health Organization, stroke is the second leading cause of death and the third leading cause of disability globally and claims 6.2 million lives each year.

The researchers stressed that stronger policies are required adding that the alcohol industry, which is thriving, should be regulated in a similar way to the tobacco industry.

For the study, the researchers involved 500,000 Chinese men and women for a period of 10 years.

Do you know what age ‘menstruation’ started when you were first time. If you do not remember this much then you should remember, just try to remember because with the period of women, why it matters so much.

By the way, let us tell that the normal period of women starts in 10 to 14 years, some of them also have periods up to the age of 15 or 16 years. But the first period of women is directly related to their health.

According to a survey, on the basis of the first period, it is determined how likely the woman is to get from a heart disease to a dangerous disease like cancer in the future.

According to a research done in a magazine, a woman who has a period at the age of 13 has a very low risk of heart attack, hypertension, heart stroke.

Whereas the first period occurs at the age of 10 years, the risk of heart diseases is up to 27 percent.

At the same time, women having the first period at the age of 12 years are more at risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

According to a survey published in another magazine, the period is directly related to the immunity of a woman’s insulin, which later decreases her immunity and the insulin production in the body is less than other women.

It was mentioned in a survey that women who have periods start at the age of 10 years or around. They also increase the risk of complications during pregnancy.

In this situation, there is a risk of preclampsia and if left untreated, it can prove to be dangerous for both the mother and the child.

The US magazine ‘Epidemiology’, after researching about 600 women around the age of 35, concluded that women who get their first period early are more likely to get thyroid cancer at age 35 or earlier.

Women who have a period of 17 years or later have a bone density deficiency, so they are more at risk of fracture as well as osteoporosis.
