ALCOHOL ON THE BRAIN?

Good Morning!

Excessive alcohol use accounts for 4% of the global burden of disease, and binge drinking is a growing health issue. Functional signs of brain damage from alcohol misuse in young people include deficits in visual learning, memory, and executive functions. Structural signs of alcohol misuse in young people include shrinking of the brain and significant changes to white matter tracts.

For those of you who drink, we really need to be treating it as candy.  Okay in very limited quantities.  And please, consume it out of view of children.  Its not good for us and why teach them early that it is acceptable (health wise) or even good to consume?

Have a blessed day!
