Contrary to popular belief, alcohol consumption does not reduce the risk of dementia, but increases it. This was stated by neurologist Alexander Komarov. He explained the dangers of alcohol.
A medical specialist claims that alcohol only contributes to the development of dementia. The disease develops most rapidly in citizens who abuse such drinks. At the same time, Komarov emphasized that in some cases, dementia can occur simultaneously with an equally dangerous disease – Korsakov’s syndrome. News.Ru.
Claims by alcohol manufacturers that drinking wine or beer in small amounts on a daily basis are harmless are also untrue. The doctor advises to refuse the private use of alcohol for preservation of health.
