Booze Boosts The Brain

My thanks to a loyal reader who pointed me to an amusing article about booze.

Seemingly a 30-year study by the University of California, San Diego has concluded that over-65s who indulge in up to three alcoholic drinks a day can look forward to a happy and healthy retirement.

In fact, they said, moderate to heavy drinkers are more likely to live to the age of 85 without dementia or other cognitive impairments than non-drinkers. 

Lead author Dr Linda McEvoy is quoted by the Mail:
"This study is unique because we considered men and women's cognitive health at late age and found that alcohol consumption is not only associated with reduced mortality, but with greater chances of remaining cognitively healthy into older age."
The researchers found that people who drank 'moderate to heavy' amounts of alcohol five to seven days a week were doubly likely to be cognitively healthy than non-drinkers.

  1. OMG that's me of course. This researcher will be pilloried by PHE and every other neoprohibitionist killjoy. I strictly follow government guidelines re drinking alcohol. These are Japanese guidelines. They are ichi ban, number one, the best. I am of course English, but Japan has the most sensible unit and guidelines, so I have adopted those.
