A new study has found that heavy alcohol drinkers are likely to have the smallest brains.<br /> .........Washington (Chattahbox) – A new study has found that heavy alcohol drinkers are likely to have the smallest brains.

U.S. researchers have found that drinking alcohol can have a very negative impact on the volume of your brain.

Research was done by checking on a total of roughly 2,000 adults in the U.S between 1999 and 2001, figuring out drinking habits, overall health, etc.

What they found was that the more alcohol people consumed, the smaller their brain was.

Those who never drank alcohol had a brain that filled up 78.6% of their allowed cranial area.

People who dran in the past had a brain that filled 78.2% of their cranial area filled.

The smallest brains were among heavy drinkers, as their brains filled only 77.2% of the allowed area.

The study has been published in the Archives of Neurology.
