Alcoholism is a great threat to human beings, especially in this century. In countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran, etc., alcohol intake is illegal and is considered as sin or crime. The highest consumption of alcohol is noticed in Lithuania and Belarus. The United States law allows people to drink alcohol when they attain 21 years of age. In Central African Republic, one should be about 15 years to drink alcohol.
In our earlier reports, we have discussed in detail about alcohol mediated folate deficiency; alcohol induced oral complications; and alcohol induced changes in brain architecture [1-3]. Alcohol mediated structural and functional changes of brain lead to memory loss, a major feature of Alzheimer’s disease. In our recent report, we have discussed pesticides induced Alzheimer’s disease especially to innocent farmers of developing countries .
