Drinking Kills Brain Cells: Kind of a
downer for the weekend, but a new study says even moderate drinking messes with our brain cells in the
long run, reports Atlantic Wire.
Lab rats given a liquid diet, sometimes with alcohol, turned up something
unexpected: The production of brain cells in the rats with moderate blood-alcohol levels was almost 40 percent
Bottom line: Even moderate drinking, while not a problem in the short term, can start to prevent us
from learning new things in the long-term.
