Wake Forest University scientists say drinking alcohol accelerates the development of Alzheimer’s disease

The Neurobiology of Disease notes that neuroscientists during the experiment proved that drinking even a moderate amount of alcohol can accelerate the death of brain cells and increase the number of amyloid plaques, which are toxic proteins in the brain.

Quitting alcohol abruptly increases levels of beta-amyloid, a protein that is one of the main components of the amyloid plaques that build up in people with Alzheimer’s disease, researchers say.

The family of American actor Bruce Willis has reportedly announced that doctors have diagnosed him with frontotemporal dementia, which is currently developing without treatment.
