Sweeney Should Have Listened to the Mayo Clinic

Congressman Sweeney has been reported to be taking medication for high blood pressure, and, more recently, prednisone, an anti-inflammatory drug. Prednisone was prescribed to treat a diagnosis of vasculitis, an inflamation of blood vessels in the brain.

Maybe not so surprisingly (except to the Congressman), doctors at the Mayo Clinic recommend that individuals suffering from vasculitis limit their intake of alcohol.
