Beer drunkers are most smartest

Research has found that drinking too much wine damages the brain more than spirits and particularly beer, according to a study published in the medical journal Alcohol & Alcoholism. The study revealed that the hippocampus, the part of the brain involved in memory, spatial tasks and many other functions, was more than 10% smaller in people who drink more wine than beer. Scientists say alcohol content is not the culprit. Instead, they think there might be something in beer, such as B vitamins and folate, which partially protects the brain from the damage caused by wine.

However, let's keep in mind that the study originated in Germany, a place known for beer and not their wine.

Wine is worse for the brain than beer
