    • Short-term effects of alcohol
      • Chemicals affect mucosal lining, tongue, gums, and throat
      • Brain becomes less able to control the body
      • Alcohol causes the heart to beat faster and the blood vessels to widen
    • Alcohol content of beverages
      • Beer 5% alcohol
      • Wine 12-15% alcohol
      • Vodka or whiskey 40% alcohol
    • Alcohol and the individual
      • Speed. Drinking a lot in a short amount of time causes the alcohol to remain in the bloodstream longer
      • Quantity. The metabolism of alcohol takes place at a fairly constant rate
      • Food. A person who has eaten recently has food in the stomach, this slows down the passing of alcohol into the blood stream
    • Alcohol and the individual… continued
      • Weight. A lighter person feels the affects of alcohol sooner than a heavier person
      • Gender. Generally, females have more body fat and less water than males. This means the alcohol moves into the bloodstream faster with females
      • Mood. A drinker who starts off depressed usually finishes off more depressed
    • Blood alcohol concentration
      • The amount of alcohol in a person’s blood is expressed by a person’s percentage called blood alcohol concentration (bac)
      • The person’s b.a.c. depends on the amount of alcohol consumed, body weight.
    • Fetal alcohol syndrome

      • Babies born with f.a.s. suffer from a group of alcohol-related birth defects that may include both physical and mental problems. They may have learning difficulties and behavior problems.
    • Tragedy of f.a.s .
      • The tragedy of f.a.s. is that the unborn baby has no control over what enters its body. Even small amounts of alcohol may be harmful, the safe decision for a pregnant woman is not to drink any alcoholic beverages. F.a.s. is entirely preventable.
