While : While there is probably no scientific proof that alcohol in moderation (that is, one or two servings -- a serving of alcohol is about 1 oz. Of liquor, 4 oz. Of wine, or 8 oz of beer) is harmful after major symptoms of a concussion have passed, it may be better to be safe than sorry. Things like memory loss suggest that a brain injury was more than just mild. An injured brain may be more sensitive to smaller doses of alcohol, with unpredictable results. Every one who drinks needs a sober companion (a "designated driver") and this may also be a good reason to pass on the alcohol this time around. The evidence is clear on the importance of reducing the risk of a second head injury. Wear a helmet for activities that involve a chance of concussion. Don't reuse a helmet after a crash -- destroy it (so it doesn't get sold at a yard sale and used by someone else) or return it to the manufacturer (many have return services), and get a new helmet. After all, your brain is yours for life, and the injuries it suffers today may have serious consequences later. ...Read more
