Here’s some welcome news, especially with the
drinking holiday season on its way. Research suggests that older adults who indulge in a daily glass (one if you're a woman, two if you're a man) of their favorite alcoholic beverage (wine, beer, or cocktails) are significantly less likely to develop age-related cognitive decline or dementia compared to folks who don't drink at all. The daily habit may protect against inflammation inducing proteins in the brain, including B-amyloid, a toxic protein linked to Alzheimer's disease. Moderate drinking can boost cerebral blood flow by dilating vessels in the brain.
In some cultures such as Russian, people say ‘to your health’ when proposing a toast. It seems those cultures already know that drinking is good for the health. Whether its done in moderation or excess is a technical detail that we will not discuss here!
