    In your report on the study, you say: "Moderate drinking – alcohol intake of up to 40 g/day was associated with lower dementia risk relative to lifetime abstinence."  Seeking more info, I went to the actual study, and read "For each cohort, alcohol use was converted into average grams of pure ethanol per day (g/day)".  However reading further in your report on the study I read: "Among current users, minimal drinking – up to 0.3 mg per day, posed a lower dementia risk among Europeans".  It seems to me the scale is off as we are talking about a decimal of a mg vs 40 grams.  I am just trying to calculate what is a realistic volume to consume, if one wanted to achieve a benefit.  Would you clarify for me, please?
