We guess Friday is a good day to publish this story, unless of course, you're a problem drinker, then no day is good for it.
According to clinical neuroscientists at the University of Western Austrailia, (another one of those highly academic on line schools?) the long held theory that alcohol use causes depression is not true. The down-under brain studiers came to this conclusion after testing the inner craniums of nearly 4,000 elderly male participants who drank.
They found there was no association between depression and alcohol use. On the other hand however, they claim their studies also found that moderate alcohol use does NOT reduce the risk of depression as was previously thought.
Oh well, just goes to show ya....give a bunch of science nerds enought money and they'll prove anything you want. We're guessing this study may have been funded by some Austriailian liquor companies?
