New research to be revealed at a conference of some of the world's top neuroscientists in Cairns today has found booze does not kill off brain cells as previously thought.
Queensland Brain Institute director Professor Perry Bartlett said there was no evidence the consumption of alcohol led directly to the death of brain cells.
Research by Professor Bartlett and his team has found we all have an inbuilt repair kit replenishing the more than 100 billion cells – or neurons – in our brain.
Now, about that liver....If you would be so kind, Professor Bartlett, and take care of that little problem, I would be forever in your debt. Thank you.
