"Prolonged intake of excessive amounts of ethanol is known to have adverse effects on the central nervous system." the study said.
"However, in this study, we have shown for the first time that low doses of alcohol are potentially beneficial to brain health, namely it improves the brain's ability to remove waste."
"Low doses of alcohol are beneficial, while excessive consumption is detrimental to overall health."
"Studies have shown that low-to-moderate alcohol intake is associated with a lesser risk of dementia, while heavy drinking for many years confers an increased risk of cognitive decline."
"This study may help explain why this occurs. Specifically, low doses of alcohol appear to improve overall brain health."
So how is that for good news! One glass of wine after a hard day might be making your smarter!
