WOOOO HOOO ALCOHOL DOESN’T KILL BRAIN CELLS!!1!!
Guys. GUYS. GUYYYYYSSSSS!!!!
You know how you were always told that alcohol kills brain cells, and that by drinking you were destroying your brain???!!
Well, guess what?? YOU AREN’T!!
Popular Science has the truth, in a post debunking brain myths.
When scientists at the Bartholin Institute in Denmark compared the brains of deceased alcoholics and nonalcoholics, they found the total number of neurons to be the same. Alcohol, like other substances, can kill brain cells at high doses (especially the sensitive brain cells of developing fetuses), but moderate alcohol use does not.
Boom shaka laka. Or should I say booze shaka laka. Let’s have some. You ain’t getting any smarter, but now you know you aren’t getting any dumber.
