Unbelievable Facts About Alcohol
Interesting alcohol facts from Drinkaware, to help you be more aware of what you're drinking.
1. Diet mixers get you more drunk
According to study conducted in early 2013, spirits mixed with diet pop get you 18 percent drunker than spirits mixed with the full fat varieties. The theory is that your body recognises full sugar drinks as food, which slows down alcohol absorption, whereas diet drinks do not. So before you tease anyone for ordering a vodka and Diet Coke, remember They are drinking the hard stuff.
2. Wanting to get drunk is natural Possibly
The drunken monkey hypothesis put forward by Dr. Robert Dudley of the University of California suggests that human attraction to ethanol (pure alcohol) may have a genetic basis.He argued that the primate ancestor of homo sapiens had a high dependence on fruit as a food source, and consequently developed a genetic attraction to ripe and overripe fruit, which contains you guessed it ethanol. Hurrah.
3. Big lads are not necessarily the biggest drinkers
A beer belly might mean you have consumed a lot in the past, but it doesnotmean you can automatically handle more alcohol in one go than someone slimmer. In fact, a lean person will be less affected by booze because water rich muscle tissues absorb alcohol effectively, preventing it from reaching the brain.
4. Aliens are at it too
Or at least they could be, if they wanted. Astronomers discovered that there is quite a lot of ethanol in space. As much as 400 trillion trillion beers worth, actually, floating around in an interstellar cloud roughly 10,000 light years from Earth.
5. Cenosillicaphobia is a real phobia.
And it means being scared of an empty glass, which may just be the cleverest name for someone who loves a tipple ever invented.
