Alcohol consumption and cognitive decline

17 Jan

A paper published in the journal Neurology, looked at longitudinal data on alcohol consumption and early cognitive decline. They found that excessive alcohol consumption in men was linked to faster cognitive decline. Excessive consumption was defined as greater than 36 grams a day.

They found “no differences in cognitive decline among alcohol abstainers, quitters, and light or moderate alcohol drinkers.”

Thanks to Kathy H. for alerting me to this study.
