Can Wine Fight Dementia?
A Glass a Day in the Golden Years May Protect Against Dementia, Study Says

A glass or two of wine a day  but no more -- appears to protect older adults
from developing dementia, researchers reported here at the International
Conference on Alzheimer's Disease.

"Among cognitively normal older adults, one to two alcoholic drinks a day is
associated with a 37 percent decreased risk of dementia over 6 years," said Dr.
Kaycee Sink, a gerontologist at Wake Forest University School of Medicine.

These "moderate drinkers," who were at least 75 years old, had a lower risk of
dementia than peers who abstained completely or those who had more than two
drinks a day, Sink and her colleagues found.

However, she said she would not recommend that non-drinkers begin to use
alcohol to try to prevent dementia.

Dr. Sink also said that her research found that patients who had been diagnosed
with mild cognitive impairment did worse with any level of alcohol intake.
