(CBS) – Drinking heavily may lead to a stroke earlier in life.

A new study of stroke survivors found people who had three or more alcoholic drinks a day suffered a stroke on average 14 years earlier than people who did not drink a lot.

Researchers also found that among stroke victims who were younger than 60, heavy drinkers were more likely to die within two years.
