We just knew it! Apparently some alcohol CAN be good for our health

Okay, so we are not about to try and proclaim that consuming mass amounts of alcohol on a Saturday night is good for you, because we all know it's not. But drinking certain alcohol in moderation can have it's health perks.

It is too easy to believe the rumours that drinking red wine has its merits, but the latest research literally has us giddy with excitement. Scientists have revealed that drinking three glasses of champagne a week can actually help to prevent certain illnesses such as Alzheimer's and Dementia. 

Well, in that case, pass the Moët!

Researchers at the University of Reading found that fruits used to make certain fancy champagnes can help to boost memory and battle certain illnesses. 

Professor Jeremy Spencer told the Mail on Sunday that the "the results were dramatic".

"This research is exciting because it illustrates for the first time that moderate consumption of champagne has the potential to influence cognitive functioning such as memory," he said.

That's good enough for us! It's time to pop open a bottle of fizz and toast to our good health.
