Grab a glass and have a drink

It's good for your brain.
Drinking moderate amounts of alcohol may help women stay mentally sharp as they age.

"Our data suggest that in women, up to one drink per day does not impair cognitive function and may actually decrease the risk of cognitive decline," say the researchers, who included Meir Stampfer, MD, of Harvard Medical School and Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston.

The finding appears in The New England Journal of Medicine's Jan. 20 edition. It's based on the Nurses' Health Study, which has followed 120,000 female nurses for almost 30 years.
Hopefully this works for us men as well.
