Drinking Alcohol ….moderately Good for Memory and Thinking
Women who consume alcohol moderately on a daily basis are about 20% less likely than abstainers to experience poor memory and decreased thinking abilities, according to recent research. The senior author of the study explains that â€œWomen who consistently were drinking about one-half to one drink per day had both less cognitive impairment as well as less decline in their cognitive function compared to women who didn’t drink at all.â€
Researchers at Harvard School of Public Health and Brigham and Women’s Hospital analyzed data from 12,480 women age 70 to 81 who participated in the Nurses’ Health Study beginning in 1980.The study was twice as large as any earlier study and also investigated the effects of different forms of alcohol on cognition and memory.
It didnâ€™t matter whether the women drank beer, wine, or liquor (distilled spirits). The positive effects of the alcoholic beverages were all the same.
Although the study only examined women, previous research indicates that men benefit from substantially higher levels of alcohol consumption – one to two drinks each day.
Drinking Alcohol ……moderately is good for Heart patient
There have been more than sixty prospective studies from around the world, which suggest that men and women who drink alcohol moderately have a lower risk of coronary heart disease,diabetes, and overall mortality.Data suggest that this benefit is independent of other diet or lifestyle factors which may be related to moderate alcohol consumption.Sound evidences are there that the benefits are attributable to a higher HDL cholesterol level and a slower blood clotting time among the moderate drinkers.
