Drinking Alcohol is a Synonym of Intelligence?

Alcohol abuse is dangerous for health, as we know. Yes, but a surprising study by British and American researchers found that it could also be a link between alcohol and intelligence.

It is more intelligent, more you drink the alcohol . Against all odds or so is what emerges from a long-term study conducted in both the United States (National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health) and England (National Child Developement Study). As indicated by the titles of these two studies, this phenomenon is to study childhood. Thus, they are well qualified intelligent people when they were young who drink more alcohol as adults.

From Adolescence to Adulthood

To achieve these results, the researchers are primarily interested in children under 16 years. They were divided into five categories, according to their “degree” of intelligence very stupid, stupid, normal, bright and very bright. 7 years later, U.S. researchers reviewed these children while their British counterparts have continued their investigations beyond 20, 30 and even 40 years.

In both cases, the result is the same. Bright and very bright children consume a lot more alcohol than those who were defined as “stupid” – up to 80% more!

These results were also correlated with the level of income and education of these people. It appears that this is not because the most intelligent people occupy higher positions and earn more money than they drink more, but that is their intelligence that leads to more alcohol .. .

How can we Explain these Results?

Some experts, like those of Psychology Today magazine, favor a historical justification. Alcohol is a pretty invention “recent” in the history of man (around 6000 BC) and it seems that the first men to have wanted to taste the alcohol were already smarter, those who wanted “evolve” tasting something new, modern. And if, from the way we consume alcohol has evolved, so it seems that some people are always more willing than others to drink some drinks.

However, it should be noted that even if they are smart people who drink alcohol, the drinking of alcohol is not enough to make you smart …
