Drinking champagne may help prevent dementia

If you need another reason to drink Champagne, try this one for size.
Scientists at Reading University in Berkshire, UK have said that just three glasses of champagne per week may help prevent the onset of dementia and Alzheimer's.
It is thought that pinot noir and pinot meunier, both used in the creation of champagne, have compounds present that can boost spatial memory and ward off brain disease.
So far, the research has only been done on rats, and scientists now hope to move to adults.
Cheers to that!
