Are You A Boozer? You May Be Smarter!

Are you a drinker?  Do you enjoy a good beer or glass of wine every day?  You just might be smarter than a fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grader!  A joint study between two think tanks in the UK and the USA has come to a somewhat shocking conclusion: those who drink more are more intelligent than those who do not.

It’s no joke.  In an article posted at Discovery.com, the National Child Development Study in the UK and the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health in the US shows that those who enjoy a little ‘who-hit-John’ now and again are actually more intelligent than those who abstain altogether.  Seems to run totally contrary to what we’ve been taught, doesn’t it?
