Even Moderate Drinking Might Be Bad for Aging Brains
A recent research from the UK, published in the medical journal BMJ, suggests that even moderate drinking may cause changes in aging brains and lead to eventual memory loss.
Within the scope of the study, the scientists considered 8 to 12 small glasses of wine, bottles of beer or shots of liquor weekly as a moderate drinking. For their study, a team of researchers examined three decades of records from 527 British civil servants who were a part of a prolonged health study.
Lead researcher Anya Topiwala of the University of Oxford says: “I wouldn’t recommend light to moderate drinking as a strategy to avoid cognitive decline. It’s not clear how much drinking might be safe from a brain health standpoint.”
