Según un estudio de la Universidad de Stanford, se bebe más una bebida alcohólica cara que una barata, aunque no sea mejor. Según un estudio de la Organización Mundial de la Salud, en los países anglosajones se bebe mucho, en los latinoamericanos se bebe bastante, en los orientales se bebe poco y en los subsaharianos se bebe menos. Alcoholímetro según modelo centro-periferia. La bebida proporciona placer. Los moralistas ponen límites al placer. Los de la Dirección General de Tráfico también.

Alcohol reduces blood flow to the muscles, including the heart. This causes heart muscle to weaken and deteriorate. The outcome of this can be cardiomyopathy (sluggish heart), arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat), or "holiday heart". Some people experience skeletal muscle damages due to excessive alcohol consumption. Protein synthesis is badly affected, which in turn affects muscle growth. Muscle build-up in the body takes place because of growth hormone. This growth hormone is secreted during sleeping hours and as the natural sleeping hours are disrupted by alcoholism, the growth hormone release decreases affecting muscle development. Other than this, hangovers include muscle aches in both men and women.
The Endocrine System controls the body's hormones. One of the side effects of alcohol consumption is the decrease in the production of hormones. The outcome of this decrease includes higher susceptibility to allergies and hampered sexual functioning. It can decrease sexual functioning in men and women in many different ways. Prolonged use of alcohol in men also leads to an increase of the "female hormone" estrogen, and the consequent development of features such as enlarged breasts and a decrease in body hair. It also cause infertility in both men and women.

Es un grave error considerar el alcohol como algo negativo. El problema está en los vicios, cualquiera de ellos.
