Binge drinking and high blood pressure - a fatal combination

High blood pressure and binge drinking could be a fatal combination. Researchers from Yonsei University College of Medicine in Seoul studied more than 6,100 people, aged 55 and over, for 20 years. They found that people with high blood pressure had three times the risk of death from a heart attack or stroke. People with high blood pressure who consumed six or more drinks on one occasion had four times the risk of heart attacks and stroke, and people who had 12 or more drinks in a session had 12 times the risk.
