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.”
