Scientists Found Out the Speed of Alcohol from Glass to Brain
German scientists established the rate of penetration of alcohol in the human brain. They found that it takes alcohol six minutes to affect brain cells, the newspaper The Telegraph reported. One of the initiators of the experiment, neurologist Armin Biller, from the working group for cerebral metabolism at the Department of Neuroradiology at Heidelberg University Hospital, said that alcohol reduces the amount of chemicals that normally protect the brain cells. Moreover, alcohol affects not only the “defenders” of our brain cells, but also many other cellular components. Tests have also shown that changes in brain cells under the influence of alcohol does not depend on sex, and regenerative processes in the brain occur in a relatively short period of time in healthy adults, if alcoholic beverages are used in moderate quantities.
