Scientists at the University of New South Wales in Australia have found that moderate beer consumption among people over the age of 60 may offer a protective effect against dementia.
The results of the research were published in the scientific journal Addiction
According to the team, there was up to a 38 percent lower incidence of dementia cases among those who drank moderately, compared with research participants who did not drink alcohol.
In the case of those who drank but stopped consuming, the scientists noted that there were no significant differences in the incidence of the disease, compared with those who never had the habit.
In that paper, they found that drinking about two cans of beer or glasses of wine a day can lead to a 47 percent lower incidence of dementia than those who do not drink alcohol.
