Another week, another claim about how a certain food or beverage can save your life. This time, though, you get to be fancy.
For many people, champagne represents celebration. The average person doesn't necessarily break out bubbly on a Tuesday--unless that Tuesday is New Years Eve or the day you finally beat Minesweeper or something--but you might want to consider starting, now that science is discussing the possibility of champagne preventing Alzheimer's Disease:

Plus, who wouldn't want to make this power move part of their daily life?
