Night Owls Smarter than Early Birds

I know this is a little off topic for me but I found it very interesting.  A study shows that those who go to bed later in the evening are generally smarter than those who retire early.

Now it is yet to be said if this particular behavior is healthier than early risers but I would think that if the behavior is within a routine or repeated patterns then health would be the same for both.

I have always considered myself a night owl.  And this article confirms that more creative and intelligent juices are prevalent.  Take a look at this study and let me know what you think.

Benefits to Drinking Alcohol?

I recently came across an article about the merging of two government research organizations (NIAAA, National Institute for Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism and NIDA, National Institute on Drug Abuse) and whether or not it would be beneficial.

It seems that the argument is based on what the alcohol industry wants us to hear.  It is plainly obvious that current drug laws have a "historical and cultural bias" being that drugs are bad and alcohol is socially acceptable.

So now the alcohol backers are feeling discriminated against?  You don't want alcohol in the same boat as drugs?  Why not?  Currently both organizations research nicotine.

Alcoholism is a disease and alcohol itself is widely considered a gateway drug.  Can we not research the negative affects?  More light needs to be shed on this issue.

Blood Alcohol Content

This topic is a bit out of the ordinary for me but it is still of interest to me and I think it does have an indirect affect on our country's health.  Interesting facts and notice that America and England are two countries that have the highest alcohol tolerance.
