1. The Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) that indicates legal impairment can vary by jurisdiction, but in many countries, including the US, it typically stands at 0.08%. This means having 0.08 grams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood in your body indicates that a person is legally impaired. 2. Men usually feel the effects of alcohol more slowly than women because of differences in body composition and metabolism. Men typically have higher water content in their bodies which helps dilute the alcohol consumed. They also have more of an enzyme called alcohol dehydrogenase, which breaks down alcohol in the stomach before it enters the bloodstream. 3. Binge drinking is different from moderate drinking in terms of the amount of alcohol consumed and the speed at which it is consumed. Moderate drinking is defined as up to 1 drink per day for women and up to 2 drinks per day for men. Binge drinking, on the other hand, is a pattern of drinking that brings a person’s BAC to 0.08% or above. This typically happens when men consume 5 or more drinks, and when women consume 4 or more drinks, in about 2 hours. 4. One common symptom of a hangover is a headache, which can be caused by several factors due to excessive alcohol use. Alcohol causes the body to produce more urine, leading to dehydration. Dehydration can trigger headaches due to the effect it has on the body and specifically on brain function. 5. Alcohol use increases a person’s risk of being in an accident by impairing their motor skills, judgment, and reaction times. It can cause blurred vision, poor coordination, slowed reflexes, and confusion, all of which can make it difficult for a person to respond appropriately to sudden or changing situations like on the road.
