Drinking wine can make you smarter, according to science


You heard it right, science has proven that if we all drink wine we can make the world a smarter place.

Neuroscientist Gordon Shepherd, says that drinking wine activates more grey matter in the brain than solving maths equations or listening to music.

Shepherd explains that "the brain plays an important role in deciphering the taste of wine, and likened it to how our eyes perceive colors."

“You don’t just put wine in your mouth and leave it there,” he said.

“You move it about and then swallow it, which is a very complex motor act.”

Sound's like a great excuse to open a bottle of wine at dinner tonight...
