Low doses of alcohol improve brain health

Although alcohol is generally considered to be damaging to the brain, it turns out that a few glasses of wine might help cleaning the brain from toxins, including those associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers from the University of Rochester exposed mice to the equivalent of 2.5 glasses of wine for a long period of time, and found that removal of waste from the brain was more efficient, and that the hazardous effects of excessive alcohol consumption such as inflammation and cognitive decline did not occur. Thus, specifically low doses of alcohol improve brain health. Cheers!
