Wine and Alzheimer's disease

In a French study, by Professeur Jean-François Dartigues (INSERM Unit U330), who medically followed during several years 4 000 inhabitant of the Dordogne, 65 years old or more, it appeared that people who drank a quarter to half a litre of wine a day had superior intellectual capacities than people who did not drink or drank to much!

There seem to be 4 out of 5 less cases of senile dementia and 3 out of 4 of Alzheimer's disease among moderate wine-drinkers than among non-drinkers.

"It would all the same be premature to recommend a moderate consumption of wine especially to non-drinkers" admits Professeur Orgo.
