Drinking is a common form of entertainment for young adults and an escape from reality to the older generation. However, it causes more harm than what we have speculated over the years. Some of the studies conducted in the matter of brain health and drinking indicate that binge drinking in adolescence can lead to a reduced percentage of the grey and white matter in the brain, affecting its functioning.
While, the same amount of drinking can reduce the brains’ health in the older generation, also reaching out to the cognitive function of the brain. Even moderate drinking leads to a diminished effect in brain volume.
