For their research, a team of scientists analyzed data on over 15,000 people aged 50 and over and tracked them for 2 subsequent years. They examined the levels of alcohol they consumed, as well as quantity and frequency. Specialized tests were used to measure thinking skills.

Dr. Tony Rao, a consultant psychiatrist who led the study at King's College London, says: “With a career of more than 20 years devoted to research on alcohol and older people, this is certainly the most groundbreaking study on the relationship between drinking and the risk of dementia. None of the participants had dementia at the start of the study but those who drank at risky levels were more likely to show a cognitive decline, which is likely to progress to dementia.”
