Ending Moderate Drinking Tied To Depression
ScienceDaily (July 9, 2008) — Scientific evidence has long suggested that moderate drinking offers some protection against heart disease, certain types of stroke and some forms of cancer.
But new research shows that stopping drinking — including at moderate levels — may lead to health problems including depression and a reduced capacity of the brain to produce new neurons, a process called neurogenesis.

I have to say, one of the funniest lines I’ve ever read in one of these scientific articles is this one:

In mice that voluntarily drank alcohol for 28 days, depression-like behavior was evident 14 days after termination of alcohol drinking.

Bottoms up! Be Happy!

    Yeah, but the new neurons produced are of the let’s-see-how-far-the-bowling ball-will-roll-if-we-toss-it-out-of-the-car-at-70mph and the subsequent man-that-was-awesome/stupid.
