Is It True That You Drink More When It Is Cold?
It's a cold and snowy night in Amarillo. Do you find yourself wanting a drink? I mean more than you do any other time.
There has been a study from the University of Pittsburgh and they actually confirm it is true.
The research found a connection between the weather in a city and the alcohol intake on average. Think about it. This makes some sense. When you get drunk, the alcohol increases the blood flow to your skin. The outcome? It actually warms you up.
Here is the takeaway though. You need to be careful because they found out more than that. People in cold weather areas were also more likely to have liver disease. That is also directly connected to alcohol.
So as the next talk of snow heats up......turn the heat up or light the fireplace but be careful of too much alcohol. Even if it feels like it is warming you up a bit.
