Remember: I'll Drink to That!

As we've noted before, a little tipple may be enough to offset the risk of developing dementia. And now, there's even more evidence to support this theory:

"Researchers analyzed 143 studies that looked at the association between moderate alcohol consumption and mental abilities ... most showed that drinking moderate levels of alcohol showed no effect or a decreased risk of dementia and cognitive impairment"

The research stretched back to disco days (1977), and seems to reinforce the idea that, while it's not a good idea to get bombed on a regular basis (which, as it turns out, could actually increase your risk), a reasonable amount on a regular basis could help reduce your risk of these dread conditions.
