DRINKING alcohol is known to contribute to a number of health risks like heart disease and high blood pressure

Medical experts suggest drinking beer in moderation may actually provide some benefits that could reportedly lower your risk of dementia

According to a recent analysis from the London Medical Laboratory, beer can reduce the risk of a number of ailments

Perhaps most interestingly, moderate alcohol consumption in healthy adults and in cardiovascular patients protects against ‘total mortality’

In other words, the risk of death from all causes is reduced for moderate drinkers of all alcohol (including beer) compared to abstainers

In the Rotterdam study, both people who drank too much and no alcohol had a higher risk of dementia.

The experts all stressed that moderation was a very critical factor in alcohol having any health benefits

“Every benefit I’ve discussed is counteracted by too much alcohol,” London Medical Laboratories said
