Good news for cider drinkers?

Good to hear on the BBC that drinking fruit and vegetable juices at least three times a week could cut the risk of getting Alzheimer's disease.

Researchers in the USA (where else!!) who monitored 2,000 people for up to 10 years found the risk was an amazing 76% lower for those who drank juice more than three times a week, compared with those who drank it less than once a week.

According to one of the experts who was interviews on 5Live, the fruit that has most of what seems to stop Alzheimers is apples.

Great news...Must get down to the Waterton Arms and get my daily ration of cider.

Or maybe I should celebrate with a Bloody Mary...!!!
