Moderate consumption of alcoholic beverages may play a role in preventing
Alzheimer’s disease
A case control study from Spain investigated the effects of alcoholic beverages and smoking on the risk of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). The results showed a protective effect of alcoholic beverages whereas the risk of AD was unaffected by tobacco consumption. The lower AD risk was particularly evident among moderate consumers of alcoholic beverages who never smoked, both in men and women. No differences between the types of beverages were noted. These results support previous epidemiological studies showing a lower risk of developing AD for moderate consumers of alcoholic beverages.
