 Dementia can be Prevented by Moderate Drinking

A new study by the Center for Mental Health Research at the Australian National University says that moderate drinking in later life can help prevent dementia.

The study assessed the effects of moderate drinking among elders in 10,000 people across the globe.

"We found that light to moderate drinkers were 28 percent less likely to develop Alzheimers than non-drinkers, 25 per cent less likely to develop vascular dementia, and 26 per cent less likely to develop any dementia," lead author Dr Kaarin Anstey said in a statement, adding that the reason was not so clear.

The details of the study are published in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry.
