  • In 1995, four times as many pregnant women frequently consumed alcohol than in 1991.
  • Alcohol oxidizes when it gets into the human system; this process occurs at the rate of an ounce in two or three hours. For 100-proof whisky, which is up to fifty per cent alcohol, this would mean that 8 ounces of whisky would be gone from the body in less than 12 hours; most of the alcohol would be breathed away, but some of it would be lost through sweat or urine.
  • Antabuse (disulfiram) does not work very well for the treatment of alcoholism; this is primarily because alcoholics don't like to take the medication as it makes them sick when they drink.
  • The sooner an individual begins consuming alcohol, the greater the degree of alcohol intoxication experienced routinely on typical drinking occasions in adulthood.
