Drink and live

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

PEO­PLE over 65 who drink up to three al­co­holic drinks a day can look for­ward to a healthy re­tire­ment, ac­cord­ing to a 30year study by the Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia. The find­ings show mod­er­ate to heavy drinkers are more likely to live to 85 with­out de­men­tia or other cog­ni­tive im­pair­ments than non- drinkers. The study, which tracked 1000 mid­dle- class white men and women in Cal­i­for­nia, warned ex­ces­sive al­co­hol in­take could cause al­co­hol- re­lated de­men­tia.
