The surprising benefit of alcohol for older adults

A new study shows that light consumption of alcohol in older age is associated with better memory among people age 60 and older. ‹Adults who are able to continue consuming alcohol into old age are healthier, and, therefore, have higher cognition and larger regional
brain volumes, than people who had to decrease their alcohol consumption due to unfavorable health outcomes,ˆ said lead study author Brian Downer.
