  • The liver can only metabolize a small amount of alcohol at a time, leaving the excess alcohol to circulate throughout the body. The amount of alcohol consumed determines the effect on the body.

  • A study that was conducted by National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), has determined that well over 50% of all falls that are treated in hospital emergency rooms are alcohol related.
  • In 1984, the Federal Government enacted the National Minimum Drinking Age Act, which calls for reduced Federal transportation funds-the money States use to build and repair their highways-to those States that did not raise the minimum legal drinking age to 21. Today, drinking by anyone under age 21 is against the law in every State and in the District of Columbia.
