In what might be the fanciest scientific study ever, researchers at Reading University in Berkshire, United Kingdom have suggested that drinking Champagne might help ward off Alzheimer's and dementia. According to KCCI, the researchers discovered that "pinot noir and pinot meunier, two ingredients used to make champagne, contain compounds that can ward off brain diseases and boost spatial memory." Biochemistry professor Jeremy Spencer did specify that it was "moderate" Champagne consumption that generated positive results, about three glasses a week, so unfortunately, this isn't your excuse to drink a bottle of Champagne a day.

"Cheers to living a long and happy life, and actually remembering it."

So far, the study has only been done on rats, which were hopefully wearing tiny top hats and spats while drinking their Champagne. Researchers hope to move to human research soon, though. As for the benefits of other drinks, there is testimonial evidence that the Champagne of Beer yields the same results.
