Eat, Drink, and Be Wary
Women and the Dangers of AlcoholStreaming Video - 2006
Alcohol consumption by the average woman-even in moderate amounts-has far more lasting effects than an equal amount imbibed by her male counterpart. Even if it is a single glass of wine, the effects on their respective physiology are very different: the female body absorbs alcohol faster and retains it up to twice as long as the male body, which has considerable implications both for social drinking and for driving while under the influence. This ABC News program illustrates these differences and discusses the potential hazards.
