Because we really needed a reason to drink that wine, right?
A new study out of Norway has found that moderate drinking actually improves your cognitive functions. The study reports that especially for women, those who didn’t drink at all usually had lower cognitive abilities than those who did.
Interestingly enough, the study’s press release notes that in the last three decades over 60 studies have been conducted to test how moderate alcohol consumption effects cognitive ability. Most of the studies show there are definite benefits to drinking within reason.
So perhaps it’s time we quit testing the effects of drinking and started enjoying them. Kidding! (via Jezebel)
