Myth about Alcohol
Alcohol kills brain cells
Alcohol only damages the neurons. The body can repair neurons but not back to their natural state. Studies have shown that alcohol consumption can even help reduce the risk of Alzheimers disease.Alcohol doesnt permanently destroy brain cells. It damages dendrites, which are the little feelers on neurons that convey electrical messages from your brain to your body. Neurons are the cells that act as communicators, triggering motor responses to physical stimuli. its important to note that persistent alcohol abuse can indirectly contribute to lasting defects, since alcoholism is often accompanied by other poor health habits like poor nutrition. Overuse of alcohol combined with a lack of nutrients can lead to memory lapses and problems with motor coordination.
