You wouldn’t believe this but intelligent people are the alcohol drinkers rather than who they call stupid people. Psychology Today reports a study showing that smarter people are binge drinkers and often times get drunk. Experts categorize alcohol drinking as ‘evolutionarily novel’. It means that like the early ancestors, drinking alcohol is tolerated greatly by the drinker. In the older days, alcohol or fermented fruit are already being drunk by tribes and locals. Today, modern time has brought about beer, wine and distilled spirits and the people who drink these are considered smart people.
To further prove a point, separate studies from the US and UK has been shown that smart kids are used to drinking booze. They drink it more than less intelligent kids. A graph was illustrated where it shows that people who drink alcohol in their 20s, 30s, and 40s grow up bright people while people who drank less are considered very dull.
The study didn’t include the social standing of the participants or their jobs but focused on the intelligence of the people who joined the study. The study though noted that smart people are less healthy because of these habits. Binge drinking is bad for the health but smart people just can’t stop drinking.
Alcohol may make you smarter but also keep in mind that it’s bad for the health. There are other food and drinks that can keep you alert and smarter like nuts, avocado, salmon, spinach, broccoli, beans, leafy greens, berries, and dark chocolate. These food groups can also make someone smart and with no health side effects. Drinking alcohol may have benefits when you drink it in moderation but not when you drink a lot. Drinking a lot of it can cause health problems like liver problems and stroke.
