Interesting study, I wonder if they have any way to tease out the difference between drinking and people who are more social so they drink socially more often. I have a feeling it’s the connection and socializing that helps with dementia.

Well yeah that’s a given, which is why you need to take a good amount of consistent measurements over time to get a meaningful dataset. Eventually you tease out your “average hydration level” or “average stomach content”. Doing it at the same time of day also helps a ton.
