brain gets smaller when you add alcohol?

Very interesting. So to summarize past research, some moderate drinking
of red wine causes a smaller brain and live longer. (and maybe happier?)

"People who drink alcohol -- even the moderate amounts that help prevent heart disease -- have a smaller brain volume than those who do not, according to a study in the Archives of Neurology."

Sad to hear about this, being a moderate drinker myself. But longevity and happiness are important too! (Especially the happiness part!) Does smaller brain volumes correlate with decrease cognitive ability?
