NonSmokers Should Drink A Little

A report published in the May edition of the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease states that moderate drinking may protect the brain from Alzheimer’s disease in otherwise healthy people.

The Spanish study goes on to say that nonsmoking woman seem to benefit the most from alcholic consumption.

Ana M. Garcia, from the University of Valencia‘s department of medicine and public health, released the statement, “Our results suggest a protective effect of alcohol consumption, mostly in non-smokers, and the need to consider interactions between tobacco and alcohol consumption, as well as interactions with gender, when assessing the effects of smoking and/or drinking on the risk of Alzheimer’s disease”.

“Interactive effects of smoking and drinking are supported by the fact that both alcohol and tobacco affect brain neuronal receptors,” Garcia explained.

The study was a  comparative analysis of the medical background,  smoking,  and drinking habits among people with Alzheimer’s disease versus  a group of healthy individuals of similar gender and age.
