Alcoholism is a possible cause of dementia, mainly through associated nutritional deficiencies and, rarely, through acute direct toxicity. [...] Key Method We prospectively studied 3,777 community residents aged 65 and over, in the districts of Gironde and Dordogne. Average daily alcoholic consumption was recorded at baseline. Incident cases of dementia and Alzheimer's disease were screened at follow-up with explicit criteria.Expand
Risk of dementia and alcohol and wine consumption: a review of recent results.
TLDR
The overall conclusion is that heavy drinking is a risk factor for most stroke subtypes and regular light to moderate drinking seemed to be associated with a decreased risk for ischaemic stroke. Expand
Alcohol consumption and incidence of dementia in a community sample aged 75 years and older.
TLDR
It is suggested that light to moderate alcohol drinking might protect against dementia and Alzheimer's disease among old people, although the possibility that such an association may be due to information bias cannot be totally ruled out. Expand
Alcoholic beverages and incidence of dementia: 34-year follow-up of the prospective population study of women in Goteborg.
TLDR
Results show that wine and spirits displayed opposing associations with dementia, and a protective effect was not seen for the other beverages, at least part of the association for wine may be explained by components other than ethanol. Expand
Prospective study of alcohol consumption and risk of dementia in older adults.
TLDR
Compared with abstention, consumption of 1 to 6 drinks weekly is associated with a lower risk of incident dementia among older adults and generally similar relationships of alcohol use with Alzheimer disease and vascular dementia. Expand
Alcohol consumption and risk of dementia: the Rotterdam Study
TLDR
Light-to-moderate drinking is associated with a reduced risk of dementia in individuals aged 55 years or older, and the effect seems to be unchanged by the source of alcohol. Expand
Moderate Alcohol Consumption and Risk of Developing Dementia in the Elderly: The Contribution of Prospective Studies
TLDR
The observed association is fragile and needs further confirmation, and different results have been observed according to sex; some studies found the same effect in men and women, while others found either no association or a stronger association in women. Expand
Alcohol and tobacco consumption as risk factors of dementia: a review of epidemiological studies.
TLDR
The results suggest that tobacco consumption is not associated with a lower risk of dementia and that moderate alcohol intake does not increase the risk of developing dementia. Expand
Current alcohol consumption and its relationship to incident dementia: results from a 3-year follow-up study among primary care attenders aged 75 years and older.
TLDR
It is suggested that light-to-moderate alcohol consumption is inversely related to incident dementia, also among individuals aged 75 years and older. Expand
Is there an association between low-to-moderate alcohol consumption and risk of cognitive decline?
TLDR
This study did not support the hypothesis that low-to- moderate alcohol consumption prevents cognitive decline, and the inverse association between low- to-moderate alcohol intake and cognitive decline observed in other studies may have been due to inclusion of former drinkers in the abstainers reference category. Expand
Amount and type of alcohol and risk of dementia
TLDR
The results do not indicate that people should start drinking or increase wine consumption to avoid dementia, but instead suggest that certain substances in wine may reduce the occurrence of dementia. Expand

Relation of smoking and alcohol consumption to incident Alzheimer's disease.
TLDR
It is suggested that recent mild-to-moderate consumption of alcohol is not substantially related to incidence of Alzheimer's disease and that smoking does not increase risk of the disease. Expand

TLDR
Low to moderate intake of wine is associated with lower mortality from cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease and other causes, and three to five drinks of spirits a day was associated with increased mortality. Expand

TLDR
Past heavy alcohol consumption does not appear to modify the presentation of dementia of the Alzheimer's type, nor does it modify progression over a one-year interval. Expand

TLDR
A statistically significant inverse association between smoking and Alzheimer's disease was observed at all levels of analysis, with a trend towards decreasing risk with increasing consumption and a propensity towards a stronger inverse relation among patients with a positive family history of dementia.
