bouche Posted August 5, 2005 Report Share Posted August 5, 2005 from the Ottawa SunA couple of drinks can go to your head, in a good way.Moderate drinkers are better thinkers than teetotallers or people who overindulge, a new study has found.The Australian National University study suggests drinking in moderation boosts your brainpower, while not drinking, or drinking too much, can make you dull.The study of 7,000 people in their early 20s, 40s and 60s found those who drank within safe limits had better verbal skills, memory and speed of thinking. Safe consumption was considered to be 14-28 drinks a week for a man, and 7-14 for a woman.Questions ranged from verbal reasoning to tests of short-term memory. Teetotallers were twice as likely as moderate drinkers to achieve the lowest scores Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
