Alzheimer's: Drinking a glass of wine a day may help sufferers reduce risk of death from disease

Alzheimer’s sufferers who drink a single glass of wine - or the equivalent of two to three units of alcohol - every day are significantly less likely to die than those who drink more or are teetotal, research suggests.

Roughly 850,000 people in the UK are affected by the disease, with more than a million people predicted to have dementia by 2025.

Scientists at the University of Copenhagen who conducted the study said, however, the results may be down not to the alcohol, but because the social atmosphere in the pub helps keep the brain young.
