Study: Long-term alcohol use endangers cognitive abilities

NH1.com

A new study backs up previous studies that suggest long-term alcohol use degrades cognitive abilities.

The goal of the study was to quantify any neurocognitive deficits that result from a significant duration of alcohol dependence, according to Medical News Today.

The individuals who participated in the study underwent neurocognitive tests that showed a clear trend in the data: current heavy drinking in adults results in worse cognitive functions, verbal and motor function, learning, memory, and speed of processing.

Alcohol is also known to increase the risk of certain cancers, stroke, heart disease and liver disease.

This information backs up a study done in 2013 that examined 500 participants.
