Drinking Alcohol May Reduce The Risk of Alzheimer’s Disease

We've all heard the research about the benefits of drinking alcohol when it comes to a healthy heart.

Now a new study shows it can also reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

Researchers reviewed 44 studies -- and the majority of them showed lower dementia rates in drinkers, compared to non-drinkers.

But the key is moderation -- one drink or less a day for women and one to two drinks a day for men.

Scientists say --too-- much alcohol can actually impair the brain's function.

You can also protect against Alzheimer’s and dementia with exercise and a diet rich in fruits and veggies, cereals, beans, nuts and seeds.
