Heavy Drinking in Mid-life May Speed Memory Loss

(Ivanhoe Newswire) –New research shows that middle-aged men who drink two and a half drinks per day, or more than 36 grams of alcohol, may speed their memory loss by up to six years later on. However, they study found no differences in memory and executive function in men who do not drink, light or moderate drinkers, and former drinkers.

Executive function deals with attention and reasoning skills in achieving a goal.  The study involved over 5,000 men and over 2,000 women whose drinking habits were assessed three times over 10 years. A drink was considered liquor, beer, or wine.

The study results showed that there were no differences in memory and executive function decline between men who did not drink and those who were light or moderate drinkers, those who drank less than two drinks per day (or less than 20 grams).  Heavy drinkers showed memory and executive function declines between one-and-a-half to six years faster than those who had fewer drinks per day.
