Wine May Prevent Dementia

Last week we learned of a study that showed chemicals in beer can inhibit cancer. This week studies indicate that wine may protect against Alzheimer's disease and dementia.

One recently released study, which began in 1968 at Gothenburg University in Sweden, demonstrated that a group of wine-drinkers had a significantly below-average rate of dementia, versus other women who regularly drank beer or spirits. Another study, produced by the Danish Institute of Preventive Medicine in Denmark, had similar findings: those who drank wine weekly or monthly were more than two times less likely to develop dementia.

The positive health effects are the result of flavonoids, antioxidant compounds found in red wine. Do any of you drink wine for its purported health benefits?

I just drink it because I like it, but the health benefits are a nice bonus.
