Now, Where Did I Put That Corkscrew?

To add to the list of the health benefits of drinking wine is the latest theory that drinking just a glass a day can slow dementia. New research, published in the medical journal, Neurology, shows that drinking wine is particularly beneficial to those already experiencing memory problems. Study participants who consumed a drink a day — mostly red wine — developed dementia at an 85% slower rate than people with mild cognitive impairment who never drank alcohol. Researchers did warn, however, that excessive alcohol should be avoided so don’t forget to stop drinking.

  1. I really enjoyed this post, I love wine so every peice of good news I can get about it is great! I also ran across a cool resource for other foods and their relationship to memory. Its called the Brain Fitness Channel
    It has some brain games as well as some interesting scientific studies on the effects of diet and exercise and memory.
