Transcript of ALCOHOL

Alcohol is absorbed into the body through the bloodstream and small intestine.

Food in the stomach slows down the rate at which alohol is absorbed, but does not prevent intoxication.

All alcohol consumed will reach the bloodstream, regardless of how much food is in the stomach.
Drinking more than these rates would be classified as
binge drinking!
situation three
how is alcohol processed?
The liverbreaks down 91% of alcohol
The liver can only work at a fixed rate, getting rid of about three quarters of a standard drink per hour.
Sobering up takes time, and cold showers, coffee or fresh air will not speed up the process
Someone who drinks alot may still have a high concentration of alcohol in their blood the next day.
