Unfortunately for one of my housemates and the two-baggers he brings home, this rings true.

Yet another useless study that assumes cause and effect where it hasn't been proven. Women who drink more alcohol may be generally more active people socially, and maybe mentally, and this might have a bearing on it - it might be because they're better off financially etc. etc. Just because there's a correlation doesn't mean that there is cause and effect.

I was just looking for a tagline at the bottom:

"This research was funded by Budweiser: King of Beers"

"...and may even make women sharper, according to a new report."

Of course it makes women sharper. Makes men sharper too:

WTF People? Something positive for the lady drinkers, I would not be complaining. How do you think chicks end up in bed with you...duh.

Where's the study that shows that when women drink they remember every god damn thing you ever said to them and want to discuss it ALL at that moment. Gums flapping, nag, nag, nag...Ruin your buzz!

Shut up, get up and get me another beer Mom!

Sorry, forgot what I was going to write.

"Findings from this...study suggest that long-term social and habitual consumption of alcohol is not associated with an increased risk of cognitive decline in men and may even protect against cognitive decline in women," Constantine G. Lyketsos and colleagues from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, write.

Anyone want to fill in the part they cut out at the ellipsis?

"Findings from this [alcohol-industry-funded,low-rent, run-by-an-alcoholic-who-says-he's-"only a social drinker"-because-he-knows-his-work-will-be-frowned-upon-if-anyone-thinks-he's- impaired study suggest that long-term social and habitual consumption of alcohol is not associated with an increased risk of cognitive decline in men and may even protect against cognitive decline in women."

Weed does...

This is SUCH a crock....

I'm doing a research project on this subject right now. As far as women are concerned, they have more of a chemical produced by the pituitary called "Allopregnanolone" which more or less enhances the effects of alcohol.
Briefly put, for most people alcohol degenerates the hippocampal area of the brain, which in the long run produces effects similar to Alzheimer's Disease...also effects the Amygdala area of the brain which makes alcoholics more unreasonably out of control with their temper, just to name a few of the effects.
I am surprised that they even published this article in the first place.

I'm pretty sure that drinking has negative affects on one's decision making, but I can't make up my mind.

Findings from this...study suggest that long-term social and habitual consumption of alcohol is not associated with an increased risk of cognitive decline in men

you gotta love it when they remove portions of quotes, I mean, it could actually say "Findings from this worthless study..."
 
2002-10-29 12:10:39 PM  
Wasn't there an article posted recently about alcohol not affecting your memory?
 
2002-10-29 02:02:59 PM  
Does it ever bother anyone else when any given news article does the dot-dot-dot thing to segment two phrases together?
Like, what the hell are they leaving out?

"Findings from this...study suggest that long-term social and habitual consumption of alcohol is not associated with an increased risk of cognitive decline in men and may even protect against cognitive decline in women..." [rest of World's Longest Sentence.]


For all we know it was:
"Findings from this mutherfark'n study suggest..."[you know]

Damnit, Eye_power, you beat me by 2 1/2 hrs!

and BTW,

I was reading your post (at first) looking for the punchline. My reason for this being I thought you'd made up the pituitary, hence I wondered:

Naturally, if a woman's all pregnant-and-alone she'd be more likely to tip a bottle.

"Will someone drive me drunk casue I think I'm home?" Hic up, Brup!

It must affect memory, because on Sunday night I got really drunk and blacked out for the first (and hopefully last) time in my life. I have absolutely no recollection of how I got home. And the next morning my butt was bleeding. (just kidding) Alcohol can absolutely affect memory.
Also, "You can drink an ugly girl pretty, but you can't drink a fat girl skinny."
