According to experts, one drink a day for young adults could increase their risk of stroke by a fifth.
According to new research, people in their 20s and 30s who drink moderate to heavy amounts of alcohol may be more likely to experience a stroke than those who drink little to no alcohol.
A group from Seoul National University examined data from a national database in Korea for young adults who underwent four annual physical examinations and answered questions about their alcohol use.
Moderate or heavy drinkers were those who consumed 105g or more of alcohol per week. This is roughly one drink per day, or the equivalent of nearly six medium-strength pints of beer, eight small glasses of wine, or nine large shots of liquor.
Three hundred fifty-three people among the 1.5 million participants experienced a stroke throughout the six-year study.
