British scientists conducted an interesting study. The experimental group included more than five thousand men, middle-aged - 45 years. Initially, during the 1990s, drinking habits of experimental subjects were studied. Then, for ten years - 1990 - 2009. investigated the cognitive abilities of the subjects. The participants in the experiment were divided into two groups, the members of one drank an average glass of wine, and the second - more than two glasses.
As a result, it turned out that excessively drunk men have significantly deteriorated memory and cognitive abilities. In addition, the "alcoholics" found mediocre results in tests for speech quality and mathematical ability.
It is also interesting to note that more than 2,000 women participated in the study. Ladies who abused alcohol also showed deterioration in their cognitive abilities.
In relation to middle-aged men, researchers were able to assert the harmful effects of alcohol on the cognitive abilities of its lovers.
