Experts Say That Women Who Drink More Are Smarter

Well if the experts say it then it must be true. Smart women drink more. Now are they smart because they drink or do they drink because they’re smart?

Experts Say That Women Who Drink More Are Smarter

Bottoms Up, Ladies!

Science has confirmed something we’ve believed all along — the more educated women are, the more likely they are to drink more.

The studies conducted on women with varying levels of education, examined the link between drinking habits and intelligence. The findings showed that University educated women in the UK drank 86% more than women of the same age who did not go to University.

Intelligent women are more likely to be heavy drinkers and more likely to drink daily, and are also more likely to be alcoholics.

What About The Men

Men across all educational backgrounds still drink 11.1% more than women overall.

Guys – these findings aren’t applicable to you, so hold your horses! While heavy drinking is associated with intelligence in women, it is the other way round for men. Less clever men drink more, probably because men who drink a lot are more likely to be binge drinkers. However the study also found that men who abstain from drinking alcohol altogether have lower IQs.

The studies focusing on the correlation between alcohol and intelligence are still inconclusive as findings are inconsistent, though it’s important to note that it’s unlikely that drinking more will actually make you more intelligent… BUT – it does give you a great rebuttal next time someone tells you that you drink too much.

We’ll raise our glasses to that!
