A new study conducted by the University of Rochester(NY) found that a couple glasses of wine could actually be really good for you health. Their team gave mice the equivalent of two-and-a-half glasses of wine each day and found their brains were much more efficient at removing waste products that commonly linked to dementia.

Lead research Dr. Maiken Nedergaard told the Daily Mail:" In this study we have shown for the first time that low doses of alcohol are potentially beneficial to the brain, namely it improves the brain's ability to remove waste."

The study was only done on mice so more research needs to be conducted to see the true effects on the human brain. Anyone want to sign up for that clinical study?!?

The team of researchers assume low amounts of other types of alcohol, including beer, would also "clean" the brain.
