Whine About Wine


My dad just had a stroke about 10yrs. younger than my grand father when he had a stroke. I want to cut my risk factors as much as possible. I have heard that drinking a glass of wine can cut the risk of stroke. Thing is I hate wine not so much the taste but it gives me the worst heartburn. Can anyone advise me a wine with low acidity that would also lower my stroke risk.


Just make sure you have good food in you and pop a couple of tumms. Done, problem solved.


Buy some grape-seed extract and take that instead.


Try talking to your DOCTOR about stroke prevention. I'm guessing you'd get better info.
