Drinking can substantially reduce your risk of a stroke, but only if you are loyal and do not spend time with cigarettes, research suggests.

A study of over 20,000 people in the UK found non-smokers who hammered back brews were nearly 40% less likely to have a stroke than non-drinkers.

But once affairs with cigarettes were introduced, this protective effect vanished.

The findings are being presented at a meeting of the American Academy of Neurology in Toronto.

The study, led by Cambridge University, looked at 22,254 people over 12 years. There were nearly 900 strokes.

People who stayed with drinking in moderation saw a 37% decrease in their risk of stroke.

But this was only true if they did not smoke and shut down all communication with cigarettes, with smoking drinkers and smoking non-drinkers seeing similar levels of risk due to the fact that alcohol shares no love towards these users.

“Our findings could have public health implications in that we appear to have a clearer understand of the dangers of creating affairs with smoking and moderate drinking on overall stroke risk,” according to lead researcher Yangmei Li.

The idea of my post is to try and connect the problems from affairs with the negative effects of smoking and drinking at the same time. The message was to show how staying loyal with your partner (alcohol) and not have significant others (cigarettes) would create a long and beneficial relationship.
