    Could moderate drinking reduce early-stage Alzheimer's death rates?

    Researchers have found a link between moderate alcohol intake - consuming 2-3 units a day - and reduced risk of death in patients with early-stage dementia or Alzheimer's disease. Their findings are published online in BMJ Open.

    Me too! Theoretically small quantities of alcohol, especially red wine, have benefits for diabetes and CVD, which I strongly suspect are behind the massive increase in Alzheimers.
