I love science and medicine!

In news that both offers hope and baffles, scientists have found that drinking three glasses of champagne every day can help to prevent the onset of dementia and Alzheimer’s. A compound found in pinot noir and pinot meunier, the black grapes used to make a bottle of the fizzy stuff, can ward off brain diseases and increase spatial memory.

Professor Jeremy Spencer—one of the academics who carried out the experiment involving rats at Reading University—told the Mail on Sunday “the results were dramatic”.

He continued: “This research is exciting because it illustrates for the first time that moderate consumption of champagne has the potential to influence cognitive functioning such as memory.”

Those who conducted the study now hope to move on to trials involving pensioners. Meanwhile a spokesman for the Alzheimer’s Society described the results as “interesting,” but added: “A lot more research is needed.” We await more news with a glass in hand…

    3 glasses of Champagne a day will certainly be great news for the wine makers ! Of course they leave out the fact that many meds are not compatible with this much alcohol ! So while it may sound exciting its mot a good idea to start downing a daily load of alcohol ! It is more risk to your liver . Medical supervision is best !
