Beer and the Brain

Recent epidemiological studies have shown that while excessive intake of alcohol kills off brain cells, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. Thus,
regular consumption of beer helps eliminate the weaker cells, constantly making the brain a faster and more efficient machine.

  1. Read the actual statement… – “Thus, regular consumption of beer helps eliminate the weaker cells, constantly making the brain a faster and more efficient machine.” Your brain does not reproduce brain cells very quickly. Therefore if, as you claim, beer kills off the slowest first, what happens when all the slowest are killed? The usefull ones start to dissapear. Good luck.

  2. well… – Actually, the brain does not reproduce brain cells at all. You’re born with all that you’ll ever have, so if you want to kill them by drinking, which I admit that I do, then you’re short some brain cells. But not enough to ever actually make you dumber, or not that you’ll notice anyway.

  3. right – uh huh, and homer simpson is living proof of that. he traded a donut for a doorstop! …and i thought that brain cells recover really quickly, like if someone hits you on the head you lose a million brain cells but it gets recovered in a second. or something like that.

  4. To:PANZER – That is the first time you have ever been right!!!!!!!You’re still a racist though.

  5. IDC (I don’t care) – we know that alkohol kills the brain cells, but who kares? Obviously the ppl who drink and party all nite don’t, becuz I get drunk, and I don’t give a shoot if it kills my brain cells or not. I just live MY life to the fullest.

  6. haha – and thats why ure gonna end up in friggin jail, jackass. *gasp* PANZER didnt say nething about jews!! its a friggin miracle!!

  7. geez! – You all need to be nice!!…I’ve heard of wine being ok to drink on a regular basis(in small amounts) but beer making you smarter? BULLSHOOT… good for you chrisis…

  8. Alex – Hello!? People think….IF beer makes you smarter, then why do you always get drunk afterwards? Wake up in the morning and find out you know all the freakin’ scientific names and shoot and all because you had a beer last night! Who would have thunk it? And if it is true, then by all means drink! God knows we need smarter people in the world and future.

  9. Facts… – There are bonuses to drinking 2 drinks/day for men, and 1 drink/day for women. It does not make you smarter. Drinking in excess over a long period of time will damage and kill brain cells. You cannot grow new brain cells, but you are born with appr. 100,000,000,000 cells. But your brain cells can be repaired as long as they are only damaged, but not very quickly. So don’t worry about the occasional drink.

  10. Alchohol and brain cells – Alchohol does kill brain cells. So does watching TV, talking on a cell phone, or pretty much doing anything ever. As they say, everything in moderation. If you drink from time to time and lose a few brain cells, you’ll never notice, but if you become an alchoholic, or get extremely drunk even just once, you can actually experience significant brain damage. And this you will never cure. While your body can regenerate brain cells to some degree (a rather recent discovery), it doesn’t do it very well. And if you forget how to walk, it’s your own damn fault. So I have nothing against drinking, just don’t drink to get drunk. There are enough stupid people out there already.
