A glass of wine could ward off dementia

Researchers at /*Wake Forest University*/ found moderate drinkers, age 75 and older, have a lower risk of /*dementia*/ than seniors who don't drink at all. However, moderation is the key: the study shows people who drink excessively are more likely to develop dementia than those who abstain completely.

Researchers also said they do not recommend that non-drinkers begin to use alcohol to try to prevent dementia.
