Wine is Good for Your Brain, According to Science

As if you didn't need a reason...

According to a study published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, master sommeliers—or wine experts—have acute senses of smell, along with larger, thicker parts of the brain. It's thought that this thickness can prevent Alzheimer's and Parkinson's more than thinner-brained non-winos.

"Though we don't know for sure, there is a possibility that when it comes to the brain, thicker is better," Dr. Sarah Banks, head of neuropsychology at the Cleveland Clinic in Las Vegas and author of the study, told the New York Post. "It seems like if you have more brain in those areas, it'll take longer to feel the effects of the disease, but it's speculation."

Though more research needs to be done, Banks said that the research is "encouraging," and that even if you're not a fancy wine expert, living like one could keep your brain strong.
