Does Vinegar Thin Your Blood
Opposite if anything: Alcohol is a mild diuretic, so it makes you urinate, even if not over-hydrated, which is part of why hangovers occur--dehydration.

No: Not a recommended treatment. A study in rats found that vinegar could lower high blood pressure (in rats). That was apple cider vinegar. No proven effect in humans that i could find.

Not exactly: Blood actually doesn't get "thinned." what we call blood thinners are agents that decrease the ability of the blood to clot, usually used in people whose blood clots excessively.

Anemia is very common in teen girls because periods have started and they tend not to get enough iron to replace that blood ...Read more
Coagulation: A study in 2005 showed that moderate Alcohol consumption interferes with the activation of platelets in the blood, preventing them from clumping together to cause clots in the arteries.This interference also slows the rate at which blood coagulates for beneficial reasons, such as in response to injuries, leading to a greater risk of hemorrhaging, especially during surgery. ...Read more
Alcohol: Alcohol is not a blood thinner- it cause vasodilation.However if you drink significant amount, significant liver impairment/ liver failure/cirrhosis can happen.
