If you drink one glass of wine every day
Daily consumption of a glass of wine increases the risk of dementia, heart failure and stroke. It turned out the wine increases the risk of irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation), reported Swedish researchers at the Karolinska Institute.
Scientists have observed the 80 th. Swedish women for 12 years. It was found that the use of a small amount of wine daily leads to the fact that the top of the heart not effectively drive off the blood, which can lead to thrombus formation and reduce blood flow to the brain. This, in turn, has provoked the development of Alzheimer's disease. Noteworthy was the fact that the beer did not increase the risk of complications, even in large quantities.
The researchers could not understand why the beer is harmless. In any case, scientists believe, it is better to drink a little during the week than on weekends to get drunk, which many do.
The analysis showed that women who drank wine 14 units per week, 60% more likely to have atrial fibrillation. It manifested itself in the form of irregular, rapid heartbeat (over 100 beats per minute), dizziness, shortness of breath, angina, and fatigue.
