    Friends of missing California teen Kiely Rodni compared the party she disappeared from to 'Lord of the Flies' and revealed that the end-of-school event was full of illegal activity. Rodni, 16, was last seen Saturday near the Prosser Family Campground in Truckee at the party attended by more than 100 juveniles and young adults, the Placer County Sheriff's Office said.  Her phone has been out of service since the party, and her car, a 2013 silver Honda CRV, has not been found. Rodni's friend, Sami Smith, who was at the party with her, shared footage with The Sun that showed a group of teens gathered at the campsite that was littered with what appeared to be bottles of alcohol.  'I think a lot of them were scared to talk,' Smith said. 'They were engaging in illegal activity in the woods, it's like this Lord of the Flies space where they can just be.' Another source told The Sun that the teens at the party were sometimes 'fighting,' smoking weed and drinking alcohol.  Police said this week they have no evidence to suggest...

    Southwest Airlines will resume selling alcoholic beverages on flights again in February after previously putting sales on hold for two years - prompted by a run of disruptive, drunken passengers. The airline paused alcohol service at the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020 to prevent the spread of COVID on flights. The sale is now set to resume February 16 when it will begin selling beer, wine and liquor for flights of 176 miles or more. 'Customers have expressed a desire for more beverage options, so we’re delighted to restore additional on-board offerings as a part of the Southwest Hospitality that our Customers know and love,' Tony Roach, the vice president of Customer Experience and Customer Relations said.  Despite the news, the union representing Southwest Airlines' flight attendants has deemed the move 'irresponsible.'   'TWU Local 556 is outraged at Southwest Airlines' resumption of alcohol sales,' Lyn Montgomery, president of Local 556 said in a statement to Reuters.  'We have adamantly and unequivocally informed management that resuming sales of alcohol while the mask mandate is in place has the great...

    (CNN)Several years ago, at the end of a clinic visit, a long-time patient with end-stage heart disease who was nearing the end of his life asked me if it was OK to drink some wine.The patient was a physician, and he knew what most lay people do not: Despite the widespread belief a little alcohol is good for your heart, it isn't. I thought for a moment, and told him, "Only good wine."For thousands of years, alcohol, particularly wine, has been used for medicinal purposes. The ancient Greek physician Hippocrates promoted wine for various purposes, including reducing fevers and dressing wounds. Maimonides, the 12th century scholar, rabbi and physician also extolled the health benefits of wine in moderation. During Prohibition in the early 20th century, it was common for physicians to prescribe medicinal alcohol, which was legally dispensed at pharmacies, for ailments ranging from cancer to depression.

    THE festive season is all about indulging in our favourite food and drinks. But experts have warned caution and say that overdoing it with the eggnog or mulled wine could trigger a deadly heart condition. 1If you've been hitting the booze hard this Christmas then you could be at risk of a deadly conditionCredit: Getty Senior lecturer in chemical pathology at the University of Westminster, David C Gaze said 'holiday heart syndrome' could lead to a heart attack if it's left untreated. He explained that it's a condition where the heart beats abnormally – known as atrial fibrillation or AF. People who have this will often experience a fluttering in the chest, but he warned that ignoring it could be deadly. A normal heart rate should be regular and between 60 and 100 beats a minute when you're resting. But when you have AF, it becomes irregular and can reach considerably higher than 100 beats per minute. AF can sometimes not cause...
    MOST people have suffered the nasty side effects of alcohol at least once in their lifetime. But for some people, they never thought it could lead to a cancer diagnosis. 1Lymphoma cancer is most common in young people, and for around one in 20 patients, symptoms appear when drinking alcoholCredit: Alamy In extremely rare events, a type of cancer that is most common in young people can trigger symptoms when boozing. Lymphoma cancer is a blood cancer that diagnosed 19,500 times a year in the UK. Symptoms include a lump in the neck, armpit or groin, feeling worn-out for no reason, unexplained weight loss, excessive sweating at night and constant itching for no reason.  There are around 60 different types of lymphoma, which are broadly grouped into Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas. Alcohol-related symptoms are seen in those with Hodgkin lymphoma, diagnosed around 2,100 times a year in the UK, mostly in people in their early twenties or those over 70. Around one in 20 will experience alcohol-induced pain, says Lymphoma Action.  This is felt in the lymph nodes - glands...
    Drinking what most might consider to be a moderate amount of alcohol could be harming your health and mental wellbeing, experts have found. New guidelines released by the Australian Drug and Alcohol Foundation advise both men and women to have no more than 10 standard drinks per week and no more than four standard drinks on any one day. Consuming more than the recommended amount has been linked to myriad health issues including cancer, heart and liver disease, Alzheimer's, weight gain and premature ageing, as well as brain fog, anxiety, and depression. But researchers have warned a standard drink might be less than you think, with bottles of beer and glasses of wine often coming in well over the threshold.

    States throughout the US have experienced alcohol shortages after COVID lockdown restrictions lifted as consumer demand for booze spikes, supply chains dry up and shipping costs for pricey imports skyrocket. Last week, the Pennsylvania state consumer liquor board made an announcement that limited two bottles of select alcohol brands a day per customer.  In Virginia, customers are only allowed to purchase one bottle of select liquors per day.  Meanwhile, in North Carolina customers frequenting liquor stores are being greeted with 'out of stock' signs as well, according to WTVD,  A patron stands in front of a shelf full of wine bottles at The Liquor Store.Com on March 20, 2020 in the Brooklyn borough of New York Last week, the Pennsylvania state consumer liquor board made an announcement that limited two bottles of select alcohol brands a day per customer 'I don't think anybody saw the kind of demand that we're seeing right now — particularly in those high-end and super-premium products — coming,' said David Ozgo, chief economist of the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States.  Ozgo said...

    Amy Winehouse's father Mitch has addressed the late singer's relationship with female ex-lover Catriona Gourlay. Mitch, 70, and ex-wife Janis, 66, reflected on their late daughter's life as well as her stint in rehab with BBC News on Friday, ahead of the release of documentary Reclaiming Amy next week.  Catriona recently claimed the star struggled with her sexuality, and in response Mitch said: 'Catriona and Amy, they were sisters. They were more than best friends.  As she ascended higher on the fame ladder she discovered her demons - in drink, drugs and also eating disorders, which her brother Alex insists contributed to her death. In 2011, an inquest gave a verdict of misadventure after finding that she had 416mg of alcohol per decilitre in her blood. A second inquest in 2013 confirmed that she died of accidental alcohol poisoning.

    A Pennsylvania high school athletics trainer has been charged with supplying alcohol to former students before one of them caused a fatal DUI crash hours later that killed an 18-year-old boy.  Kelsey Martin, 35, befriended 19-year-old Connor Quinn and several of his classmates while the teens were still students at Owen J. Roberts High School in Pottstown, and kept in touch after they graduated, Montgomery County prosecutors say. Just after midnight on August 10, Quinn drove two of his former classmates and a friend who had attended another school to Martin's house, where she allegedly provided the four teens with Miller Light beers, prosecutors say. Just a few hours later at 5am, Quinn lost control of his Acura sedan while speeding and crashed into a utility pole in North Coventry Township, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.  Louis Carbajal, an 18-year-old recent graduate of nearby Spring-Ford High School, was not wearing his seatbelt and was thrown from the car in the impact.

    A bright green comet that came within 7.1 million miles of the Earth when it came into the inner solar system in 2018 contained 'abnormally high' levels of alcohol, study found. Comet 46P/Wirtanen, also known as the Christmas Comet, was first spotted orbiting the sun in the 1940s, and made headlines after a 'close approach' in December 2018. A new study, using data captured by the W. M. Keck Observatory on Maunakea, Hawaii during this close approach revealed more about the make up of the iceball.  Astronomers found it was releasing an unusual amount of alcohol, helping them learn more about how carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen molecules were distributed in the early solar system, when this comet would have first formed. Alcohol is commonly found in comets, as the non-drinking methanol, not ethanol, but not in the quantity found in the Christmas Comet, study authors explained. They didn't say why it was present in such quantity, but are continuing to pour over the data in the hope of understanding more about this unusual 'dirty snowball'.  They also discovered that there was...
    A Florida woman who was arrested after an 111 mph police chase that led to a deadly crash has a history of trauma and alcohol abuse -  and was on probation for another deadly wreck when she was a teen, it has been revealed. Jennifer Carvajal, 24, was arrested on April 25 after a Highway Patrol trooper recorded the car she was allegedly driving tearing down the road at 111 mph on a highway near Tampa. When the trooper tried to pull her over, Carvajal made a hard right turn that sent the Hyundai Elantra down an embankment before going airborne and hitting a concrete light pole and a palm tree. It then overturned in the parking lot of a car dealership.  Carvajal's cousin Pedro Carbajal, 22, was killed when he was ejected from the back seat of the car.

    New York : Drinking alcohol can cause various types of cancer. The National Cancer Institute in the United States warns that even when the consumption of alcoholic beverages is light, no more than one drink per day, this increases the risk of the disease. Drinking alcohol increases your risk of getting at least six different types of cancer: mouth and throat; larynx; esophagus; colon and rectum; liver; and breast in women. The more alcohol a person drinks regularly over time, the greater their risk of developing alcohol-associated cancer. However, moderate alcohol consumption does not relieve the risks. The New Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2020-2025 note that emerging evidence suggests that even drinking within recommended limits can increase the overall risk of death from various causes, as from various types of cancer and some forms of cardiovascular disease. All types of alcoholic beveragesincluding red and white wine, beer, cocktails, and spirits, are linked to cancer. Why does alcohol cause cancer? Alcohol can affect the normal functions of cells in your body, causing them to grow uncontrollably and become a cancerous...

    NEW YORK - A raging pandemic, tumultuous presidential election and deadly Capitol insurrection have combined to make the annual tradition of Dry January less than air-tight for some. Not Sarah Arvizo. She considers it her easiest yet. As much as the 32-year-old Manhattanite would love to partake in a little "vinopeutics," she said the abstinence from alcohol period she's participated in for several years has been made smoother this time around by her at-home pandemic life and the closing of bars and restaurants. "Longing for those days, for sure," said the social drinker who lives alone. "But unless I want to freeze outside, that's largely off the table this year." Eight-year-old Dry January, which comes at the height of resolution season after the holidays, has brought on the desired benefits for many among the millions participating around the world. They're losing quarantine weight, experiencing more clarity and sleeping easier. Others with lockdown time on their hands and round-the-clock access to TV news and the home liquor cabinet are struggling to meet the challenge. Some who have already cheated hoisted...
    After the year we’ve all had, are we really going to do Dry January when raising a glass with members of our bubble seems like one of the few treats left to us? The next few weeks will be hard enough without a vino or cocktail to look forward to. No, what we need this January is not to stop drinking but to drink differently, so we minimise the damage to ourselves while maximising the relief from anxiety-inducing news. And, hurrah, that is entirely possible, according to a book called The Japanese Guide To Healthy Drinking, co-written by a sake-loving doctor — and liver specialist, no less — called Dr Shinichi Asabe. Already a huge hit in Japan, the book offers scientifically backed advice on how to drink your way through a long and healthy life, with no abstinence required. Of course, there is nothing good to be gained from drinking too much, and all medics would advise that moderation is key. But follow the Japanese Guide and you can keep tippling this month and beyond, say the authors. Here’s...
    With Christmas just around the corner we will soon be scoffing lots of rich foods, which will make our tummies rumble even more than usual. Those grumbling, growling noises are the result of food, liquid, and gas passing through your stomach and into your small intestine. There is even a name for it, Borborygmi, a term coined more than 2,000 years ago by Hippocrates, an ancient Greek, also known as The Father of Modern Medicine. And now scientists have shown that these sounds can reveal insights into what is going on in the gut and may help diagnose common disorders. At least 15 million Britons have digestive problems, with around one in five of us suffering from the UK’s most common gut disorder: Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or IBS. Symptoms include pain, bloating, and either constipation or diarrhoea. Diagnosing IBS can be a lengthy and challenging process — as there is no specific test, doctors can only rule other things out, and as a result IBS may be missed or other conditions overlooked. At least 15 million Britons have digestive...
    A PENNILESS fisherman has stumbled on possibly the world's biggest blob of rare whale vomit - worth an astonishing £2.4million. Ambergris is dubbed a sea treasure and floating gold, as an odourless alcohol is extracted to make a perfume's scent last longer. 4Naris Suwannasang in southern Thailand, with his record haulCredit: ViralPress 4The whale vomit - or poo - tipped the scales at 100kgCredit: ViralPress Naris Suwannasang, 60, was walking by the sea when he noticed several rock-like pale lumps washed up on a beach in Nakhon Si Thammarat, southern Thailand. He called his cousins to help him take the mysterious masses home, where they started prodding and poking them, on November 23. The large 'rocks' appeared to resemble highly prized ambergris, a rare secretion from whales. It is a valuable ingredient used in perfumes such as Chanel No5. The family tested the surface by burning it with a lighter, causing it to melt instantly. Naris said the blobs weighed 220lbs - or 100kg - potentially making it one of the biggest ever finds of whale vomit. He...
    It is only too easy for an evening glass of wine to turn into two or three – or more. But help may be at hand for those who realise too late they are tipsier than they would like to be. Scientists have invented a machine which may help them sober up around three times as fast as they usually do. Users are encouraged to make themselves hyperventilate by breathing hard and fast into a face mask which supplies them with carbon dioxide from a briefcase-sized tank. Breathe in: Scientists have invented a machine which may help people sober up three times faster than normal by breathing hard and fast into a face mask which supplies them with carbon dioxide (Pictured: The mask on trial) By hyperventilating they are using the lungs to breathe out the alcohol. The harder the breathing, the more alcohol is eliminated.  However, breathing deeper and more rapidly than normal eliminates carbon dioxide from the blood along with the alcohol.  This is the cause of symptoms such as light-headedness and fainting. The machine helps prevent this....
    Adobe In Tampa, the days checking the clock when you’re ready to have a drink on Sunday morning may be on the way out.

    A MUM has been slammed after sharing a photo of her toddler drinking beer - and claimed it "isn't harmful to the baby". The woman posted the snap online which showed the infant sipping beer from a glass, but she tried to defend herself against critics saying " it’s not like she’s shooting heroin". 3The mum shared a photo online of her giving her daughter alcoholCredit: Reddit The post was originally shared on Facebook but was later posted on Reddit, with the mum, who remains anonymous, writing: "She loves having taste of mummy’s beer #drinkup.” While it's not known where the mum is from, or how old the little girl is, it's evident the tot is well under the legal drinking age - which is 18 in the UK. According to the NHS, alcohol consumption for those below the recommended age is related to a wide range of health and social problems. So, understandably, people were left angered by the post, warning the woman against it, News.com.au reported. 3Facebook users were angered by her irresponsible actions and slammed...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 72-year-old Roseville man faces serious charges after a fatal boating crash on Otter Tail Lake in northwestern Minnesota. According to the Otter Tail County Attorney’s Office, Charles Gramith is charged with three felony counts of criminal vehicular homicide (grossly negligent operation, under influence of alcohol and under influence of intoxicating substance). (credit: Otter Tail County) Authorities say there is evidence that Gramith was intoxicated from a combination of alcohol and prescription medication on the afternoon of Aug. 22 when he crashed his boat into a parked boat, killing 52-year-old Neil Baker. Baker was tying up the boat with his wife when the collision occurred. Both Baker and his wife were thrown into the lake. Neighbors located Baker and attempted to provide assistance before first responders arrived. Baker was pronounced dead at the scene. The complaint states that Gramith admitted to drinking two beers in the boat and another one earlier. He also said he takes a number of medications. When reviewing his medication, at least two indicated warnings for using with alcohol. ...
    Nicole Karlis July 18, 2020 6:00PM (UTC) Most hand sanitizers contain some form of alcohol, a disinfectant; yet as any distiller will tell you, not all alcohols are created equal. Inexperienced or unscrupulous chemists may accidentally create toxic alcohols, including one which can cause blindness.  Something like this appears have happened during the production of some hand sanitizer, a hot commodity during the global pandemic. Recently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned that some hand sanitizers that are labeled as containing ethanol (also known as ethyl alcohol, and what is in spirits) have tested positive for methanol, also known as wood alcohol. According to the FDA's recall list, there are 69 hand sanitizer products that they advise consumers not to use. On July 15, two more products were added to the list, both from manufacturer MXL Comercial SA de CV, which is based in Guanajuato, Mexico. : "Consumers and health care providers should not use methanol-containing hand sanitizers," said FDA Commissioner Stephen M. Hahn, M.D. in a statement on July 2. "The FDA remains committed to working with manufacturers, compounders, state boards...
    The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning Americans to stop using certain hand sanitizers because they may be toxic.  Regulators expanded their list of potentially dangerous hand sanitizers to 59, manufactured by 13 companies.  Last month, the FDA cautioned that nine products manufactured by Mexico-based Eskbiochem SA de CV and contain varying amounts of methanol. It now warns against hand sanitizers made companies including AAA Cosmetica, 4E Global, and DDI Multinacional.  Methanol is a type of alcohol that can be poisonous if it is absorbed through the skin or ingested. The FDA says that exposure to methanol-based hand sanitizer can cause side effects such as nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system or even death. The FDA warned Americans not to use 59 hand sanitizers made by 13 companies, including 4E Global's Blumen hand sanitizers (left). The warning expands on the FDA's letter to Eskbiochem, a Mexican company that makes several hand sanitizers, including All Clean (right)  'FDA is warning consumers and health care providers that the agency has seen a sharp increase...

    A daily glass of wine or pint of beer could help middle-aged and elderly people stave off dementia and maintain brain power, a study has claimed. Scientists said that eight alcoholic drinks a week for women and 15 for men can reduce the rate of cognitive decline, leading to better overall mental health, word recall and vocabulary. And even those who drink a smaller amount of alcohol each week could benefit, their results suggested. The study showed that drinking once a day could help stave off the effects of dementia. It was based on results gathered from a survey in the US (stock) In the study, scientists analysed data from 19,887 people on their health and economic status from the US Health and Retirement Study. Each underwent tests every two years between 1997 and 2008 to show changes to their health by measuring four factors: Total cognition, mental status, word recall and vocabulary.  When the scores of the 6,010 low-to-moderate drinkers were compared to those of never-drinkers, scientists found the former was 'significantly less likely' to be suffering from declines...
    By BEN NADLER, Associated Press ATLANTA (AP) — Georgians could soon get alcohol delivered to their doorstep under a bill headed to Gov. Brian Kemp’s desk. The state House gave final approval to legislation Thursday allowing packaged goods retailers to make home deliveries of beer, wine and liquor. House members approved of the bill 114-45. Under the bill, only alcohol in “unbroken packages” could be sold via delivery. Buyers would have to set up an account with the store, pay in advance of the delivery and present an ID to be scanned or otherwise verified at their door. “It’s actually a safer and more documented process to make a purchase through delivery than it is at the counter in any retailer,” said Rep. Brett Harrell, a Republican from Snellville who sponsored the bill. Not all lawmakers were passing the bubbly. “Is it not true that this is another liquor bill that our teetotaler committee needs to be aware of?” Rep. Randy Nix, a Republican from LaGrange, said during the House debate. “We have ‘no’ votes on all alcohol bills, and...
    The FDA recently warned against hand sanitizers with toxic levels of methanol, which can be deadly.  Other hand-sanitizers, like varieties made from standard liquor or those that have expired, should be avoided too.  It's always better to wash your hands with soap and water than to use even the most legitimate sanitizer.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Early in the pandemic, hand sanitizer flew off store shelves. But last week, the FDA warned that some varieties should stay there — or better yet, not be sold at all.  The nine hand-sanitizer products, produced by the company Eskbiochem SA de CV in Mexico, contain the toxic chemical methanol, which can be poisonous — leading symptoms like drowsiness, dizziness, headache, nausea, vomiting, and confusion — if it's ingested or absorbed through the skin. But those aren't the only risky hand sanitizers. Experts say you should also avoid those with insufficient alcohol, expired products, and any sanitizer when soap and water are available. The type and content of alcohol matter First, as the FDA has called attention to, don't buy hand sanitizer made...
    Coronavirus — Credit: ANDREAS SOLARO / . via . (Kaiser Health News) – Despite the lack of customers for nearly two and a half months because of the quarantine, Waldo Thai Darrell Loo was kept busy. Loo runs the bar at the popular restaurant in Kansas City, Missouri, and said his business remained vibrant thanks to increased alcohol consumption and loosening of alcoholic beverage regulations during the pandemic. Alcohol also seemed to help his clients deal with all the uncertainty and fear. “Drinking was definitely a way of coping with this,” Loo said. “People drank a lot more. I drank a lot more myself. ” Many state laws were almost overturned overnight as stay-at-home orders were implemented and home delivery of spirits, happy hours, and virtual wine tasting increased. The 12- and 16-ounce cocktails Waldo Thai offered on the sidewalk helped make up for the lost income of customers who used to dine. Retail alcohol sales increased 55% nationally in the third week of March, in step with social isolation standards, Nielsen data. And internet sales soared. This...
    While alcohol can help you sleep temporarily, it does not lead to better quality sleep.  In fact, alcohol can negatively impact your sleep quality throughout the night, leading to less restful and restorative sleep.  Alcohol is not an effective treatment for sleep troubles and should not be used to help you fall asleep.  This article was medically reviewed by Raj Dasgupta, MD, an associate professor of clinical medicine in the division of pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine at Keck School of Medicine of USC.  Visit Insider's Health Reference library for more advice. Yes, alcohol can make you drowsy and help you fall asleep, but overall, it results in poorer sleep quality throughout the night.  "When you are taking something artificial to induce sleep, or prolong sleep, such as alcohol, it does not do anything to restore the brain and the body," says Keith Heinzerling, MD, internist and addiction medicine specialist at Providence Saint John's Health Center. "It is not the same good sleep that you would get if you naturally fell asleep without the aid of this sedative." About 30%...
    The former president of the now-defunct Sigma Pi fraternity at Ohio University has pleaded guilty to drug and hazing charges in relation to the November 2018 death of freshman Colin Wiant. Elijah R. Wahib, 22, from Cleveland, entered a guilty plea to two counts of felony obstruction of justice, felony permitting drug use, and two counts of misdemeanor hazing on Tuesday morning, the Columbus Dispatch reported. Prosecutors said that during his time as president of the fraternity, Wahib allowed members to haze pledges – including forcing them to drink hot sauce and exercise – as well as permitting drug use to take place at Sigma Pi’s unofficial, off-campus house, at 45 Mill St. in Athens. Following Wiant’s death, a search of the premises yielded cocaine, Xanax, ecstasy and marijuana, prosecutors said.  Wahib also instructed fraternity members to not provide any information to Ohio University investigators probing the circumstances surrounding Wiant's death.

    Radio City Rockette Kimberly Woolen married Grammy-winning singer and musical titan Glen Campbell in 1982 and was hopelessly in love and high on life, but the Rhinestone Cowboy's battle with drugs and alcohol had only just begun.   Decades later Kim, now Kim Campbell, could have never imagined becoming the caretaker for the country music star while he descended into his lengthy, public battle with Alzheimer's, until his death in 2017. Now Glen's widow reveals the highs and heartbreaking lows of their 35 years together in her autobiography, Gentle on My Mind: In Sickness and in Health with Glen Campbell, published by Thomas Nelson on June 23. 'Alzheimer's comes on so gradually that it insidiously impedes your memory of your loved one in his pre-Alzheimer's state,' Kim writes in the heartbreaking book. 'It was effectively robbing both of us of our memories', Kim says, remembering the profound love they shared before his 'war with an invisible and inaudible enemy'. Glen Campbell's wife Kim Campbell tells of their 35-year marriage in her new book Gentle On My Mind: In Sickness and...

According to the Methanol Institute, methanol can be poisonous if it's ingested or absorbed through the skin.

    Airlines are cutting off booze sales during the coronavirus pandemic. According to CNN, Delta, American, as well as European airlines, are turning off the alcohol spigot during the pandemic. It is worth noting that the plutocrats in first class on American will still be allowed to drink. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) It’s not clear when alcohol sales on the airlines will resume as usual. What an absolute joke. Airlines banning alcohol sales is just spitting in the face of freedom and everything we love here in America. Look, I think we can all agree flying is a pretty miserable experience. I don’t think that’s a hot take at all. Flying is awful. Whether it’s waiting at the airport or being stuffed into a tight cabin, we can all agree it’s not exactly a ton of fun. That’s why you have to have a nice and steady beer buzz to keep you going while up in the air. I have a five and half our flight coming up in September. There is no...
    Even drinkers who stick to the weekly ‘low-risk’ alcohol guidelines are at greater risk of cancer and early death, scientists say. In the UK, low-risk drinking is classified as six pints of beer spread out over the week. However, experts say that even sticking to this can harm one’s health — and even cause hospitalization or death. Researchers from Canada made the discovery after evaluating alcohol-related harms on national and regional scales or by demographic. Professor Adam Sherk of the University of Victoria, in British Columbia, Canada, and his colleagues used an open-access model dubbed ‘InterMAHP’ — ‘International Model of Alcohol Harms and Policies.’ In particular, the team focused on alcohol consumption practices in British Columbia during 2014, analyzing anonymized data from three sources. Low-risk drinking These were substance use surveys, hospital data from the Canadian Institute for Health Information and mortality data from Statistics Canada. According to the guidelines published by the Canadian government, low-risk drinking constitutes no more than ten drinks per week for women and 15 for men. These recommendations are slightly more “generous” than in the...
    BANGKOK (AP) — Thailand’s battered restaurant sector had two reasons to celebrate Monday as the country further eased its coronavirus restrictions. Bangkok’s many eateries, which reopened in May after being shut down for more than a month, are allowed to serve alcoholic drinks again, and there is no longer a curfew constraining late-night dining. But while restaurant owners whose slim profit margins made operating untenable without the sale of alcohol are pleased, they remain fearful that the “new normal” may not make their businesses sustainable. Thailand is a world-famous destination for eating, from its 29 restaurants holding stars in the latest Michelin Guide to street-side carts dishing out local specialties like pad thai fresh from a fiery wok. The number of eating places is virtually uncountable, and they are major employers. The coronavirus crisis, however, is expected to cause a major shake-up. The head of the Thai Restaurant Business Association believes many establishments will go under. Ladda Sampawthong said she thinks up to 15% will close, mainly large and medium restaurants and those that are recent startups. “The next 12...
    It’s always important to stock up on the essentials. As the country dealt with the coronavirus pandemic, various states and regions handled the situation differently. Many places saw runs on specific items, like toilet paper or groceries. In Mississippi, people are buying record levels of alcohol. The Mississippi Alcoholic Beverage Control has reportedly already delivered 140,000 more cases this year than they did last year and are handling a record number of orders from vendors.

Local store owners across the state attribute the rise in sales to reactions to the coronavirus pandemic and the lockdowns that followed.

    Changes to levels of the hormone estrogen appear to make consuming alcohol more rewarding to female mice, according to a study. This may mean women are more likely to drink to excess at different phases of the menstrual cycle, one of the scientists involved told Newsweek. Higher levels of the hormone estrogen have previously been linked to women and rodents drinking more, said the authors of the research published in the journal JNeurosci. Estrogen is thought to change activity in the dopamine system, a collection of cells in the brain that play a part in how we process rewards. The authors set out to explore how estrogen affects the neurons of mice in a part of the dopamine system called the ventral tegmental area (VTA). They carried out two types of experiments. First, they took brain slices from female mice in either the high or low estrogen phases of their reproductive cycles. Next, they applied alcohol and drugs that block estrogen receptors to the slices and watched to see how dopamine nerve cells would respond.Read more We Have No Idea...
