Milk Associated With Higher Death Rate? Alcohol Helps Your Memory?

For decades, we've been told that milk "does the body good," but maybe not, according to Barton Chiropractic review of new research.
According to a new study, drinking large amounts of milk each day does not lower a person's risk of bone fractures and instead may be associated with a higher rate of death.
Based on observational evidence, Michaëlsson and colleagues raise the possibility that milk could increase the risk of particularly hip fractures among women and cardiovascular and overall mortality in both sexes.
Dr. Barton Reviews - Blonde Drinking MilkMilk is high in two types of sugar — lactose and galactose — that have proven to speed up the aging process in animals by increasing oxidative stress and chronic inflammation.The goal of the current study was to find out if the sugars in milk, had the same effect on humans. So researchers analyzed data from 61,433 women (ages 39-74 years) and 45,339 men (ages 45-79) who completed questionnaires inquiring how often they consumed 96 common foods, including milk, yogurt, and cheese. The women were tracked for an average of 20 years, while the men were tracked, on average, for 11 years. The number of deaths and fractures in both groups were recorded.

"We indeed found higher oxidative stress and inflammation in women and men who consumed several glasses of milk per day compared with those who drank lower amounts," lead author Karl Michaëlsson told Yahoo Health. Michaëlsson and his research team also found no reduction in fracture risk with higher milk consumption. Furthermore, women who drank more than three glasses of milk a day (average 680 ml) had a higher risk of death than women who drank less than one glass of milk a day (average 60 ml).

Alcohol is good for more than making memories—it’s also good for keeping them.
Despite alcohol’s reputation as a brain-cell assassin, new research suggests that drinking daily in moderation after age 60 may actually help preserve your memory.
Barton Chiropractic Reviews - Glass of wineIn the study, published in the American Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Dementias, the researchers tracked the alcohol intake of 664 people, assessed their cognitive functioning with a handful of tests, and performed scans of their brains.
What they found: Imbibing later in life — as long as it was at a light to moderate level — was associated with better ability to remember specific events, compared to abstaining. This is a significant finding, since episodic memory is the type of recall that usually disappears with dementia. “Over time, you don’t necessarily lose memory of how to do things, “You usually lose memory of events — memories that you have to retrieve, instead of just use. It’s not just forgetting your keys. It’s forgetting key moments in your life.”
The scientists credit alcohol’s ability to preserve the hippocampus. Past research has shown that people with Alzheimer’s disease show shrinkage in this brain region. In the study, MRI’s revealed that the moderate drinkers had greater hippocampal volume than abstainers — further evidence that alcohol does, in fact, shield this part of the brain.
Dr. David A Barton Reviews - wine glass But keep in mind: Although a daily glass of booze may boost your brain, a daily six-pack will not. “All of these improvements actually reverse when people drink more than three drinks per day,” cautioned Zanjani. Over-imbibing may actually accelerate mental decline over time, she said.

  1. I have been going to Burke Chiropracti Center for over five years now. I initially started seeing Dr. Adam Burke for chronic back pain I was having after a car accident. I had never been to a chiropractor before, but my pain was getting to a point where it was interfering with my daily life and things I love (sleep being one of them). I am now an RN and I can't tell you how important it is to not live with back pain. Absolutely professional services ! Here at you can find any information you want about chiropractic.
