Alzheimer's is my worst fear and I spend a great deal of time and effort avoiding things scientists tell me may cause Alzheimer's... nice to know I can relax and have a drink now.

COngratulations! You have discovered the fatal flaw behind the media and those who jump to conclusions with studies!

If one drink is good 10 must be awesome. Off to the liquor cabinet and then to the pot stash!

No worries on the aluminum. They've scientifically disproven that one. We can use anti-perspirant deodorants again instead of plain deodorant. (Yay!) I have two grandparents with Alzheimer's and my memory has been terrible since day one, so I follow it pretty closely too.

I should point out that this is actual science. We're not sure if it's the improved blood flow to the brain, or other impacts. Please note it says 1 drink.
