First, science tells us that drinking alcohol will make usbetter at working out. And now! The Atlantic tells us that alcohol won't kill any of our precious brain cells, despite what our parents may have told us. This great quote comes from a book called Buzz: The Science and Lore of Alcohol and Caffeine: " ... alcohol does many things to the brain, one thing it clearly doesn't do is wipe out neurons indiscriminately."
