Researchers at Wake Forest University conducted a study on 3000 elderly people (over the age of 75) and they found that those who drank between 8 and 14 alcoholic drinks a week had a 37% lower risk of the disease than the general population. However, people who consumed more than 14 drinks a week were at twice the normal risk of developing dementia.

Live your life in moderation. Too much of anything isn’t a good thing.
