Drinking may not be so bad, say scientists

Cup and paste

Neuroscientists say a recent report indicates moderate drinking may have a positive effect on the health of a person's brain.

Some of the world's top neuroscientists are meeting in Cairns, in far north Queensland, to discuss ground-breaking research that shows brain cells continue to grow throughout our lifetime.

Queensland Brain Institute director Professor Perry Bartlett says the report shows drinking alcohol does not kill off brain cells - and that drinking up to four standard glasses of wine a night might be beneficial.

"One of the myths was that once you were born you never had the capability of making new brain cells," he said.

"In fact, we now know that even in old people, one's capable of making new brain cells and most recent evidence suggests that the making of brain cells is very important in maintaining good mental health."

Professor Bartlett says evidence suggests that moderate drinking is also beneficial to the vascular system.

"[It] may well help to prevent things like stroke and heart disease so there may be a positive effect of moderate drinking on brain health," he said.
