Study Says You Are a Lush

“The study, published in Substance Use and Misuse, found that participants poured 12 percent more wine into a wide glass than a narrow glass. They also poured 12 percent more wine into a glass they were holding, versus one placed on a table. Color contrast affected pours, too. Participants over-poured white wine into a clear glass by 10 percent. There was less over-pouring when the wine was red.”

Researchers at Iowa State University and Cornell have found that wine drinkers “often don’t know much they are consuming,” which is really a crazy claim: the answer is “just a splash.” [Via]
