Moderate drinking (1-2 per day) is not associated with dementia*.  Heavy drinking (4-5 a day) is.  I don't believe I'll live to see that day when American doctors admit there is a difference.

*It is associated with longevity. Teetotalers don't live as long. 90+ longitudinal study.

What doesn't cause it?

Let's save everyone a pointless click, shall we? The 5 foods to be avoided are:
1. Added sugars
2. Fried foods
3. High-glycemic-load carbohydrates
4. Alcohol
5. Nitrates

It's yet another Dr. Uma Naidoo article, so, take that as you will.

I save all mine up for a few weeks and drink them all on a weekend.

Ta-da, crisis averted!

So, basically, everything that tastes good is bad for you. Got it. Looks like it's time for lunch: a fried catfish po'boy on a crusty baguette topped with an andouille sausage washed down with a few beers and bourbon chasers and end with a few beignets topped with powdered sugar.

Bacon Celery, booze cause dementia, Farkers

Celery has 400x the nitrates as bacon.
Bacon tastes 400x better than celery.
Bacon = win-win

This type of information is for people who are only interested in the quantity of life. I'm more interested in quality. If bacon kills me sooner, I'll go happy.

So your brain will work better if you avoid sugar, booze, tasty food and delicious preserved meats? I guess the upshot is that you'll be much more aware of how farking miserable you are.

Nitrates are naturally occurring in many vegetables.

Vegetables particularly rich in nitrates include green leafy vegetables such as spinach and lettuce as well as fennel, rocket, radishes, Chinese cabbage, and parsley [3, 5, 6].
-from a quick Google search.

Many nitrate free bacons use celery powder as a substitute for curing salt since it contains enough nitrate to properly cure the meat.

That's terrible news, but at least bacon and booze don't cause dementia

This. Hell. That's why I eat all that.
I don't eat at all in the first month of a relationship

Everything's bad for you. So who cares?

I was a happy little wasp of nothingness and then I came down with a case of life - Kurt Vonnegut.

Here's the secret to life; you're dying!
