Some people complain that alcohol makes them feel a bit fuzzy, but a glass of wine a couple times weekly may help sharpen the brain.

A Norwegian study claims people who drink a moderate amount of wine had better cognitive function than those who didn't drink at all.

The study adds to evidence that light to moderate drinking can reduce one's risk of dementia, but there is no proof it will actually make someone smarter.

Researchers also observed wine drinkers may have better diets, which may contribute to better overall health.
