BUT GOOD NEWS FOR STRAIGHT MEN:

Wine is worse for brain than beer, scientists reveal in blow for women drinkers (VANESSA ALLEN, 17th March 2008, Daily Mail)

Drinking wine damages the brain more than beer or spirits, scientists claim.

They say it particularly affects the hippocampus, the part of the brain associated with memory and spatial awareness, and one of the first areas to be affected by Alzheimer's disease. [...]

The findings will come as a particular blow to middle-class drinkers – many of whom drink wine for its supposed health benefits.

Women, who tend to drink more wine than beer, are also more likely to be affected.

Leaves unaddressed the question of whether it would still be worth doing even in the unlikely event that the study's conclusions were accurate.

What kind of loser drinks wine for the health benefits? You drink if for the taste and the buzz.
