Spanish scientists discover why alcohol causes brain damage
By:

SCIENTISTS in Spain have proven, for the first time, that continuous alcohol consumption causes brain damage.

Experiments revealed ethanol in alcohol wears away at the sheath of the myelin, a substance in the brain that controls nervous function, causing delayed reactions.

Although it has long been known that excessive or regular consumption of alcohol leads to a cognitive decline, the exact reason for this has not been found out until now.

Sophisticated imaging following laboratory tests showed a disintegration of the proteins that form the myelin sheath.
