At least wine is still healthy….

While a couple of glasses of wine can help clear the mind after a busy day, new research shows that it may actually help clean the mind as well. The new study, which appears in the journal Scientific Reports, shows that low levels of alcohol consumption tamp down inflammation and helps the brain clear away toxins, including those associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
Maiken Nedergaard, the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) and lead author of the study said. “In this study we have shown for the first time that low doses of alcohol are potentially beneficial to brain health, namely it improves the brain’s ability to remove waste.”
The finding adds to a growing body of research that point to the health benefits of low doses of alcohol.
It helps with longevity too!
Research, led by University of California neurologist Claudia Kawas, tracked 1,700 nonagenarians.They discovered that subjects who drank about two glasses of beer or wine a day were 18 percent less likely to experience a premature death.
Meanwhile, participants who exercised 15 to 45 minutes a day, cut the same risk by 11 percent.
Other factors were found to boost longevity, including weight. Participants who were slightly overweight — but not obese — cut their odds of an early death by 3 percent.
