Study links moderate wine drinking, lower stroke risk
December 3, 1998
Web posted at: 9:28 p.m. EST (0228 GMT) From Reporter Louise Schiavone WASHINGTON (CNN) Reports about the health benefits or risks of food and drink may leave people asking whether the glass is half-empty or half-full. New research about wine leans toward the more optimistic view. A 16-year study of 13,000 people in Denmark has found that a daily glass of wine may significantly reduce the risk of stroke. "Apparently, it seems to be a beneficial effect of a weekly intake of wine on the risk of stroke in our population," said Thomas Truelsen of the Institute of Preventive Medicine. Doctors aren't yet ready to recommend hoisting a glass every day. Regular exercise and weight control still far outweigh the benefits of a daily drink. But researchers who studied the Danish group noted that those who drank roughly one glass of wine daily red or white had a 32-percent reduction in their risk of stroke. The same was not true of beer or liquor drinkers.

  • Two-stroke engines do not have valves, which simplifies their construction and lowers their weight.
  • Two-stroke engines fire once every revolution, while four-stroke engines fire once every other revolution. This gives two-stroke engines a significant power boost.
  • Two-stroke engines can work in any orientation, which can be important in something like a chainsaw. A standard four-stroke engine may have problems with oil flow unless it is upright, and solving this problem can add complexity to the engine.

Vitamins fail to lower stroke risk in study
Story Tools RELATED Stroke prevention Drinking may lower stroke risk 'Polypill' may cut stroke chance Journal of the American Medical Association HEALTH LIBRARY Health Library All about stroke YOUR E-MAIL ALERTS Vitamins Cardiovascular disease or Create your own Manage alerts What is this? CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) A simple and seemingly commonsense strategy for lowering the risk of recurring strokes failed to work in a study of nearly 3,700 patients. The strategy involves giving B vitamins to stroke patients to reduce levels of a substance called homocysteine in their blood. Many studies have suggested that high levels of homocysteine raise the risk of heart attacks and strokes. But the researchers found no difference in outcome between those who got high doses of vitamins and those who got low doses. The high vitamin doses did a better job of lowering homocysteine levels, but about 8 percent of the patients in both groups had another stroke during the two years that they were studied. The study appears in Wednesday's Journal of the American Medical Association. It was led by Wake Forest University neurologist Dr. James Toole.

50. Stroke Risk Increases With Every Cigarette Smoked, Study Finds
Recent research finds that cigarettes cause all three kinds of stroke, and the more cigarettes, the more strokes.

Stroke risk increases with every cigarette smoked, study finds One-pack-a-day smokers at greater risk for all three kinds of stroke Thursday, March 27, 2003 Researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) confirmed that the risk of experiencing a less common, but potentially deadly form of stroke characterized by massive, sudden bleeding within the brain is increased by smoking, and that the risk increases incrementally depending on how many cigarettes an individual smokes daily. The findings appear in the latest edition of the journal, Stroke, a publication of the American Heart Association. Smoking has already been linked to sudden bleeding that can occur just outside of the brain, known as subarachnoid hemorrhages, and to ischemic stroke, a form of brain damage that results from the brain being denied oxygen because of closed arteries that supply it with blood. Now researchers have correlated a risk between intracerebral hemorrhaging bleeding within the brain and smoking. "We have shown that smoking impacts the risk associated with all forms of stroke," said the study's lead author, Tobias Kurth, MD, MSc, of BWH. "And we have shown that this risk rises in direct correlation to how much a person smokes." In addition, Kurth added, former smokers, and those who had never smoked, had the same risk of all three kinds of stroke, suggesting that quitting smoking can reduce the risk of stroke.

A stroke (also called a "cerebrovascular accident" or CVA) occurs when blood vessels carrying oxygen and other nutrients to a specific part of the brain suddenly burst or become blocked. When blood fails to get through to the affected parts of the brain, the oxygen supply is cut off, and brain cells begin to die. The blood supply to the brain is very important. Brain cells must have a continuous supply of oxygen and other nutrients from the blood in order to function. To meet this demand, blood is pumped continuously from the heart to the brain via several artery groups. Within the brain, these arteries (known as cerebral arteries) branch into smaller and smaller arteries, and eventually into tiny vessels called capillaries. These thin-walled vessels supply the nutrients to millions of nerve cells within the brain. When this continuous blood supply is disrupted, a stroke results.
Strokes fall into several major categories, based on whether the disrupted blood supply is caused by a blocked blood vessel (also known as an ischemic stroke) or a hemorrhage. Since each type of stroke has a different type of treatment, it is very important for the physician to determine the cause of the stroke, as well as the location, as quickly as possible.

What research is being done? ... Related NINDS Publications and Information What are Cephalic Disorders? Cephalic disorders are congenital conditions that stem from damage to or abnormal development of the budding nervous system. Most cephalic disorders are caused by a disturbance that occurs very early in the development of the fetal nervous system. Damage to the developing nervous system is a major cause of chronic, disabling disorders, and sometimes death in infants, children, and even adults. Cephalic disorders may be influenced by hereditary or genetic conditions or by environmental exposures during pregnancy (e.g., medication taken by the mother, maternal infection, exposure to radiation). Some cephalic disorders occur when the cranial sutures (the fibrous joints that connect the bones of the skull) join prematurely. Understanding the normal development of the human nervous system may lead to a better understanding of cephalic disorders.

This site is dedicated to Glenda Kay Sievers and her family
who have always given of themselves for others and wanted nothing in return. Hello- Let me introduce myself. My name is Dan Sievers. I'm a retired law enforcement officer from the state of Florida, retiring at the age of 47. During my retired years, I met a lovely companion, Kay, and fell head-over-heals in love. I knew she had a pancreatic problem. but it was under control. I was unable to find health insurance that would cover her. Within 5 years of our relationship, we married. In December of 1998, she had a serious stroke. As a result, she is unable to speak or use her right arm. She has regained some of her walking skills and she is able to understand every word spoken to her. The reason I'm telling you this is to let you know why this site exists. When this happened to Kay, I did not know what to do or where to go. I was told by many people that they had put their family members in a nursing home or a long term care program. Kay and I don't have that kind of money or insurance. I'm hoping this site will help you through many of the tough questions and fears you may have. We will gather and update any news as it relates to strokes and stroke victims, and provide links to other sites where you can find some answers.
