Science Has Confirmed That Cold Weather Makes You Want to Drink

I'm not sure I needed science to tell me this, but they did it anyway:  When it's COLD outside, it makes us want to drink.  And a new study out of the University of Pittsburgh is actually the first one to confirm it.

The researchers found a direct connection between the weather in a city and the average alcohol intake. And it makes sense:  When you get drunk, the alcohol increases the blood flow to your skin, which warms you up.

But, of course, be careful:  They also found that people in cold weather climates were more likely to have liver disease . . . and that's also directly connected to alcohol.
