Drinking 'halves dementia risk'

OLDER Australians who indulge in up to 28 drinks a week stand a better chance of warding off dementia than those who abstain, according to a new study.

Data compiled from 15 international studies, including responses from more than 10,000 people, found that drinkers, not teetotallers, are better off when it comes to developing diseases affecting cognitive function.

Those aged 60 and older who consumed between one and 28 alcoholic drinks each week, were almost 30 per cent less likely to have Alzheimer's later on in life, the data found.

Hi Vicki,
This is great news.
Of course I'm doing my best to keep up the average for everyone :D

Cheers and bottoms up,

The things they come up with :lol:

To think that only the very next night a scientist/doctor was reported as finding a gene and a protein which will eventually see them eradicating dementia.
No mention of drinking in that report.

Perhaps the scientist found the dementia gene after he'd had a few?

I think every study just about conflicts with every other study!

I read the other week that drinking something like 8 cups of coffee a day wards off alzheimers. Presumably cos the brain is so wired nothing can be spared to be lost to alzheimers!
