Science Says Have Another Round of Drinks Since It Reduces Alzheimer's Chances

Science Says Have Another Round of Drinks Since It Reduces Alzheimer's Chances


You've been in this situation a thousand times. You get home from work, tired as the day is long and ready to crash so you can start the whole soul-crushing cycle all over again. The phone rings and it's your buddies, sounding as if they are in the most fun bar in America having the time of their lives turning their themselves into shriveled globs of their former glory. And they want you to join them.

Sure you could say no politely so you can go to work without feeling as though you've been ear raped by an elephant the night before, but you could also say yes and endure one more hangover for a slightly better chance at a longer, healthier life.

Researchers at Loyola University of Chicago have determined that social drinkers who indulge their human ability to get slightly numb from no more than two drinks a day have a 23 percent less chance of suffering from Alzheimer's later in life.

This is not a "carte blanche" excuse, however, to get wildly trashed every night of the week in the name of improving your long term health. In fact, those who were considered "heavy drinkers" (those who had three to five drinks or more a day) carried the highest risk of suffering Alzheimer's and other forms of elderly dementia.
