Brain Volumes Shrink With One Daily Drink

Brain Volumes Shrink With One Daily Drink

Even light to moderate alcohol intake shows effects

Light to moderate alcohol consumption — as few as one or two drinks a day — was linked with reductions in overall brain volume, a cross-sectional study showed.

Among nearly 37,000 healthy adults in the U.K. Biobank, alcohol intake was negatively associated with global brain volume measures, regional gray matter volumes, and white matter microstructure, reported Reagan Wetherill, PhD, of the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine in Philadelphia, and co-authors, in Nature Communications.
