Vital Report: At These Three Ages Alcohol Is Most Harmful To The Brain

An international group of scientists from Australia and the United Kingdom has determined the three stripes age in which the human brain is most vulnerable to alcohol consumption. The research, published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ), confirms the global harmful effect that alcohol consumption causes on the body, as well as its irreparable damage to the brain.

The most harmful effect of alcohol is observed on the brain of the fetus during pregnancy. If the mother overconsumes alcohol, the risk of permanent neurological impairment in the child increases, which may also be affected by birth defects known as fetal alcohol spectrum disorders. Even moderate or light consumption is largely associated with poorer psychological or behavioral outcomes for children, the researchers warn.
