“Alcohol abuse chips away at intelligence more in women than in men, even when less alcohol is consumed over fewer years, new research suggests.”
“The higher percentage of body fat in females means alcohol is twice as toxic (…) World Health Organization’s guidelines define at-risk females as those who consume at least seven drinks a week, and at-risk males as those who consume at least 14.”
This study doesn’t seem to have the biggest evidence level (I’m yet to find the original article in the Journal it was published,) but it’s still scary to think there’s a possibility that its findings are true!! It was bad enough to find out that in general, hispanics have a slower metabolic rate for alcohol than caucasians do, which means we get drunk faster and the toxicity is bigger. So not only alcohol is sexist but also racist! Me being a Hispanic female… it basically means that a bottle of beer is my worst enemy.
