Does drinking alcohol shrink your brain?
 
What's good for the heart may hurt the brain, according to a new study of the effects of alcohol.

Vodka and Tequila sure do. Honestly though, who thinks a substance that can lead to impairment of senses is good for the brain?

I was super sad to read this. Since drinking heavily almost every day during July, I haven't felt the same since (drink heavily every weekend recently). Just don't have time to detox.

From the article:

"But the link between brain volume and alcohol wasn't as strong in men. For men, only those who were heavy drinkers had a smaller brain volume than those who consumed little or no alcohol."

Whew! Thank goodness I'm not a [I]heavy[/I] drinker. Bottoms up guys!

I've always used the [url=http://www.getamused.com/jokes/0131200.html]Buffalo Theory[/url] as the basis of why I drink alcohol:
[quote]A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members.

In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.[/quote]
