You gotta love science sometimes.
A study of patients with severe brain injuries at trauma centers showed that the ones who had been drinking had a better survival rate than those who hadn’t.
Sure, it’s possible that the drinking contributed to the accidents that caused the brain trauma in the first place. But let’s not make assumptions.
If you’re so inclined, you can check out the study. But the title alone makes me want a drink: Positive Serum Ethanol Level and Mortality in Moderate to Severe Traumatic Brain Injury.
