Maybe God Doesn't Love Us, After All.
"The more alcohol an individual drinks, the smaller his or her total brain volume, according to a new report."That's the bad news. There's a small bit of good news for those of us blessed with a Y chromosome.
"Although men were more likely to drink alcohol, the association between drinking and brain volume was stronger in women, they [the scientists] note. This could be due to biological factors, including women's smaller size and greater susceptibility to alcohol's effects." (Here.)One question not answered anywhere in the story. Just how big a brain does a person really need, anyway?
