    Please do not publish incomplete information, especially on internet, I am a certified doctor in the US . Alcohol in any form and concentration is harmful and has established itself as a cause for heart disease( no 1 killer in the world), liver failure, stroke, dementia, delirium, seizures , fall and especially in the elderly. If we care for our loved ones , we must make sure we weigh the impact of our journalism in spreading beneficial information and not something that could mislead and put our loved ones in more danger. Friendly advice. Elderly population is highly sensitive to even lesser concentrations of alcohol enough to make them deleirius , aspirate , cause fall and end up in critical states. Please don't try to imply it is protective to dementia. What I see practically everyday is the reality. Dementia is of varying types. Common man may not be able to identify these intricacies.

      I think a review of many meta analysis with over 47000 subjects is probably more scientific and more likely to be true than your opinions and the stories you tell youself, even if you are a doctor and clearly smarter than the "common man". By the waybthis study was done by far more educatedxand learned people than you...
