6 on Health: Study suggests moderate drinking may not be good for the brain

A new study suggests moderate drinking may not be good for your brain.

Researchers found that people who drank heavily had the highest risk of a form of brain damage that can be associated with Alzheimer's Disease and other memory loss conditions.

The study also suggests that even moderate drinkers have a higher risk of memory loss than those who don't drink at all.

Researchers say heavier drinkers saw a faster decline in language skills and had poorer white matter integrity, which is crucial to processing thoughts quickly.

The study's heaviest drinkers had a little more than two medium glasses of wine or two beers every night of the week.
