Too much alcohol can lead to memory impairment, study reveals
July 30 , 2014
A study has revealed that excessive drinking can lead to memory impairment later in life.
For the study, 6,542 middle-aged Americans were questioned about their alcohol consumption in the past, and their mental abilities were assessed over a period of eight years.
Researchers found that having a history of problem drinking more than doubles the danger of serious memory impairment later on. The study has been published in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry.
