Wine linked to dementia


DRINKING just four glasses of wine a week can dramatical­ly raise the risk of developing dementia, according to researcher­s. Scientists at King’s College London tracked 15,000 subjects aged 50 and older for two years. They say folks who swilled multiple glasses of vino — or four pints of beer — a week had a 50 percent increase in the odds of experienci­ng short-term memory problems and cognitive decline, which were associated with future cases of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
