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.

Risk of dementia and alcohol and wine consumption: a review of recent results.

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.

Alcoholic beverages and incidence of dementia: 34-year follow-up of the prospective population study of women in Goteborg.

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.

Prospective study of alcohol consumption and risk of dementia in older adults.

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.

Is there an association between low-to-moderate alcohol consumption and risk of cognitive decline?

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.

Amount and type of alcohol and risk of dementia

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.

Association of Alcohol Types, Coffee, and Tea Intake with Risk of Dementia: Prospective Cohort Study of UK Biobank Participants

Moderate consumption of wine and moderate-to-high tea intake is associated with a decreased risk of incident dementia, and non-wine is positively related to dementia risk in a linear fashion, and no clear association is found for coffee.



A prospective study of moderate alcohol consumption and the risk of coronary disease and stroke in women.

Moderate alcohol consumption among middle-aged women, moderate alcohol consumption decreases the risks of coronary heart disease and ischemic stroke but may increase the risk of subarachnoid hemorrhage.

Mortality associated with moderate intakes of wine, beer, or spirits

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.

The Role of Lifestyle Factors in the Etiology of Stroke: A Population‐Based Case‐Control Study in Perth, Western Australia

Current smoking, consumption of meat more than four times weekly, and a history of hypertension or intermittent claudication were each associated with increased risk in multivariate models for all strokes and for all first-ever strokes.

Mortality in relation to consumption of alcohol: 13 years' observations on male British doctors

The consumption of alcohol appeared to reduce the risk of ischaemic heart disease, largely irrespective of amount, among British men in middle or older age; among regular drinkers mortality from all causes combined increased progressively with amount drunk above 21 units a week.

Survival of Patients with Dementia

Dementia patients have a considerable excess mortality when compared to the vital statistics and there is no evidence for improvement of survival rates during recent decades.

Alcohol intake in a healthy elderly population.

Alcohol intake was not associated with any changes in social or psychological status, but was positively associated with several measurements of cognitive status, and correlations were weak and tended to disappear after controlling for income, education, gender, and age.

Clinically Diagnosed Alzheimer Disease: Neuropathologic Findings in 650 Cases

In a broad sample of practitioners, accuracy of clinical diagnosis of AD may be improving, but continues to be hampered by difficulty in distinguishing the dementia of AD from certain dementing conditions and from AD mixed with other neuropathologic conditions.
