Its Official Beer Makes You Smarter

 

 

 

It seems that Homer has been right all along, beer is food for the brain! It is not just Homer that thinks this is true; there is some scientific evidence by the University of Illinois in Chicago, to back this up too. but there is a limit that must be kept to in order for this to work, the drinker looking to become smarter must keep the blood alcohol level at 0.07%, which is around two pints of average beer or the equivalent in any other beverage, cheers!

 

According to psychologist Jennifer Wiley, from a post on the Federation of Associations in Behavioral and Brain Sciences (FABBS) site, she said;

 

“We found at 0.07 blood alcohol, people were worse at working memory tasks, but they were better at creative problem-solving tasks,”

“We have this assumption, that being able to focus on one part of a problem or having a lot of expertise is better for problem solving,”

“But that’s not necessarily true. Innovation may happen when people are not so focused. Sometimes it’s good to be distracted.”
