Almost a year ago, I wrote about research in Norway which suggested that moderate drinking of wine every day (oops! I might have added “every day” myself) can improve thinking skills and may even prevent dementia 🙂 .
BUT not for men 😦 .
Ever since, I have been trying to prove this appalling dishcrimination againsht men wrong. So far, so good, it has been working, I haven’t ffforgotten once to have a drink and I remember lots of fhings.
Now the good news. Researchers at Loyola University in Chicago have done a study of studies on the effect of drinking among 365,000 people. They concluded that moderate drinking can protect against dementia, possibly as a result of better blood flow to the brain. They claim that moderate drinkers were 23% less likely to suffer mental decline.
Interestingly, their definition of “moderate drinking” was 1 or 2 glasses a day.
Sooh, I am obvioushly not drinking enuf
P.S. Another review by “The International Scientific Forum on Alcohol” which is sponsored by the drinks industry in America concluded the schame FHING! And they can’t possably be influenced by drink can they !
