Beer drinking = Clear thinking

Researchers find alcohol can increase ability to make rational decisions

May 29, 2003 - Canadian researchers have found that alcohol may actually increase your capacity to make rational decisions. Psychologist Catherine Ortner said the findings "contradicted what our intuitive assumptions would be, because people think alcohol makes them more impulsive."


The study Canada discovered that students who had been given alcoholic drinks showed better judgment than those on soft drinks.

The researchers plan to use their findings to help develop more effective ways of communicating with pub and bar customers. For example, they hope to post clear messages on posters inpubs about drinking and driving, or practicing safe sex.
