Everyone knows that drinking can have a bad impact on your body, but it's a lot worse than expected.
According to a recent study, drinking just one beer daily can age your brain by two years.
"An analysis of data from more than 36,000 adults, led by a team from the University of Pennsylvania, found that light-to-moderate alcohol consumption was associated with reductions in overall brain volume," said the press release about the study.
From zero to one drink didn't make much of a difference in brain volume, but when going from one to two or two to three drinks a day there were reductions in both gray and white matter. Gray and white matter in the brain is made up of cell bodies and nerve fibers. Things you don't want to lose.
