[tps_title]Myth 6: Alcohol kills brain cells[/tps_title]
It’s easy to think why people have assumed this. How many drunken messages have you sent? And you can’t exactly say that you’ve made perfect sense in all of them. Alcohol damages the dendrites, the feelers that send electrical messages to your brain cells. But these don’t last long. You’re back to normal as soon as you become sober. If you think that you’ve become stupid because of alcohol, think again. Maybe you were born stupid. Rather than thinking that you have the makings of the next Einstein, you’re actually more of a Forrest Gump. The fact that you even think this myth is true proves the point.
