Dementia: Moderate drinking linked to lower levels of Alzheimer’s brain protein 1

“Excessive alcohol consumption over a lengthy time period can lead to brain damage, and may increase your risk of developing dementia,” the charity said.

This is because people who drink heavily have a reduced volume of white brain matter, which helps to transmit signals between different brain regions.

The charity adds: “Drinking alcohol in moderation hasn’t been conclusively linked to an increased dementia risk, nor has it been shown to offer significant protection against developing dementia.”

However, it does state: “Those who drink alcohol within the recommended guidelines are not advised to stop on the grounds of reducing the risk of dementia.”
