Which? I think alcohol mitigates, to an effect, a stroke risk ONLY -- if it is red wine in moderation. That said, most don't limit or moderate (me included).

But diet soda has NO redeeming quality other than maybe slowing drinking down, or eliminating it totally, by giving one a new addiction vs the wine. Anyone comment on this issue? I know it sounds dumb but I've thought of this for awhile, & no one has given me sage advice/answers so far. Thanks.

I drink NO diet soda ever, but a fair nightly share of red wine (so yes, I'm biased).

My opinion?
Well, all I drink is water, one cup of coffee a day, and sometimes alcohol.
But most just water.

I see no reason to drink anything else. Certainly not for entertainment. Soda is garbage.

I am not convinced any of what we drink within reason is going to be the single or even contribute that much to our developing whatever.

What do I drink? I drink about a quart or a little more of water a day, I do not do the 8 glass routine: I drink 2 to 3 cups of coffee every morning. fruit juice and yes, my red wine at night. In fact it is getting close to that time: I never drink soda or anykind. I never have and guess I never will. I shouldn't say never, but I bet I don't have a whole can a year.

The French seem to live well and they consume wine during lunch, dinner, and the evening hours without a thought. Enjoy your wine, it's not going to give you a stroke.

For help with thinning your blood do some research on "resveratrol" then drink whatever you want. A glass of red wine has so little nutrient value is is pointless.
