Food Feeder : Alcohol Makes Brains More Better | RedCowHills


There’s a dream we’ve all had at some point — the more you drink, the smarter you get (and the hotter and cooler). Sadly, this isn’t particularly true. Well, kind of. According to a study from Yale, if you have at least 8 drinks a week your brain starts using acetate instead of sugar as an alternative source of energy. Basically, if you drink at least 8 drinks a week, your brain becomes a booze hybrid. Partially run by sugar and partially run by acetate (a byproduct made by your liver when it processes alcohol). You’re basically a Prius. A Prius and a genius. WIN!
