I'm so there. Good news for me and my fellow wine drinkers:
"A new study finds that moderate red wine consumption, specifically Cabernet Sauvignon, might help reduce the incidence of Alzheimer's disease. The new research, done only on mice, will be detailed in the November 2006 issue of the FASEB Journal and will be presented at the Society for Neuroscience Meeting next month in Atlanta. "This study supports epidemiological evidence indicating that moderate wine consumption, within the range recommended by the FDA dietary guidelines of one drink per day for women and two for men, may help reduce the relative risk for AD [Alzheimer's disease] clinical dementia," write Giulio Maria Pasinetti and Jun Wang of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine."
Nice that red wine is part of a healthy diet! I'm doing my part. I'm not being glib here, my father is in the moderate stage of Alzheimer's Disease, and we toured the VA Geriatric Adult Day Care just last week. Not a pretty sight, but it's time for adult day care now.
