Alcohol Kills Brain Cells

Hey y’all!

This week I found an interesting article from the New York Times stating that intake of alcohol could possibly kill brain cells. This article states that consumption of alcohol can disrupt brain function by damaging message-carrying dendrites on neurons in the cerebellum; however it does not kill the entire cell.

Another article I found states that the more you consume and the longer duration of drinking alcohol will cause a larger effect in cognitive development and brain cells.

Hope everyone finds these articles interesting, and has a great week!
