FBGMi bet your brain cells are significantly more valuable than anyone in this thread who consumes alcohol
K-Dot.Lol shut the fuck up. It doesn't kill brain cells, that's just an old rumor that began during prohibition and was scientifically killed back in the 90s. It is poison to your body though. Also, helmets don't really do that much...
If you're so worried about your precious brain cells then make sure to never ski, drink, or leave the house. Can never be too careful.
To answer OP: drinking alcohol has been around as long as humanity has. Why question it now?
and good thing at least one person knows something
JustGoWithItWell in his defence liver failure commonly leads to kidney dysfunction.
"How does alcohol harm the kidneys?
Your kidneys filter harmful substances from your blood. One of these substances is alcohol. Alcohol can cause changes in the function of the kidneys and make them less able to filter your blood. In addition to filtering blood, your kidneys do many other important jobs. One of these jobs is keeping the right amount of water in your body. Alcohol affects the ability of your kidneys to do this. When alcohol dehydrates (dries out) the body, the drying effect can affect the normal function of cells and organs, including the kidneys."
got this from the national kidney foundation https://www.kidney.org/atoz/content/alcohol
bighomieflockNope, it's definitely the same thing. Helmets don't prevent concussions. Studies have shown that there is some level of brain damage at altitudes even as low as 13-14000 feet. Nobody who hikes 14ers uses oxygen.
Point being that likely many practices you take part in on a daily basis slightly lower brain function.
and yes helmets do prevent concussions. have you played football before? or have you even played a highschool sport???? imagine if the football players were flying around bashing heads without helmets on? youre saying thats better than with no helmet? come on man
