Recent medical studies have revealed the severe damage that alcoholic beverages cause to health, even if it is in small quantities, and the study said that the use of alcohol at a minimum causes changes in the structures of our brains.

A team of researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Wisconsin-Madison found that one drink per day was associated with lower brain volume, which puts this finding at odds with the popular perception that drinking alcohol is only harmful when consumed in large quantities.

In a new study published in Nature Communications, the team studied brain MRI scans from more than 36,000 people in the United Kingdom, and the researchers concluded in the paper that “negative associations between alcohol intake and overall brain and microstructure are already apparent in individuals who consume alcohol. It only averages one to two units of alcohol per day, and it gets stronger with more alcohol.”

The Futrism website quoted the director of the Center for Addiction Studies at the University of Pennsylvania and corresponding author of the study, Henry Kranzler, that: "These findings contradict scientific and government guidance on the limits of safe drinking."

“For example, although the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism recommends that women, on average, consume no more than one drink per day,” he added, “the recommended limits for men are twice that, an amount that exceeds the level of consumption associated with the study.
