After fifteen years of being bombarded on a bi-weekly basis by the good news about wine consumption (in moderation said to be good for nearly everything that ails us), finally a report that suggests a possible harm. Simply stated: To consume alcohol is to shrink the brain.
As to whether brain shrinkage has any impact whatsoever on cognitive or any other human abilities, I'll leave that to those who studied neuroscience. See the CNN article at http://edition.cnn.com/2008/HEALTH/diet ... pstoryview
Comments, amusing, sarcastic or serious will be most welcome.
