Study: Drinking Wine Engages The Brain More Than “ANY Other Human Behavior”

Do you reach for a glass of wine each night? If so, one expert says you are engaging your brain. Professor Gordon Shepherd from the Yale School of Medicine says drinking wine sparks a reaction in both the sensory and emotional parts of the brain. He claims in his experiments he’s found drinking wine engages more of the brain than enjoying music or even solving a challenging math equation. Shepherd says, “The molecules in the wine don’t have taste or flavor, but when they stimulate our brains, the brain creates flavor the same way it creates color.” Interestingly, he says that spitting out wine while tasting prevents you from fully appreciating the flavor, so drink up.
