    Dangers of Alcohol

    Nicky Taylor was an ordinary drinker. She never had more than two glasses of white wine a night and rarely exceeded the weekly recommended limit of 14 units.

    But in a remarkable experiment, the 40-year-old mother-of-three increased her alcohol intake ten-fold. She went out with a group of twentysomething women five nights a week for a whole month to see first-hand what binge drinking can do to the body. Ms Taylor matched the women drink for drink as they downed shots, alcopops and pints in pubs and clubs around the country.

    In total she drank 516 units in a month. The results were dizzying. Her body fat increased from 37.4 per cent to 38.9 per cent. She put on more than half a stone in weight, going from a size 12 to size 14.

    We really don't need alcohol anymore now that we have water purifying technology...
    The third shall be the final and decisive one.

    He who knows not, and knows not that he knows not, is a fool - shun him.
    He who knows not, and knows that he knows not, is a child - teach him.
    He who knows, and knows not that he knows, is asleep - wake him.
    He who knows, and knows that he knows, is wise - follow him.

    The greatest danger of alcohol is thus:

    Overdosing on deliciousness. :bier:

    I'll never understand the urge some people have for binging. Moderation is the key to all good things.

    Remarkable? Hmph eyes:... more like reckless and stupid.

    Binge drinking is so very dangerous, I can't even believe that a mother with 3 children would jeopardize her health, and risk the possibility of death, just to prove that heavy drinking leads to a bit of weight gain and an old, haggard facial appearence... Sometimes "experiments" such as these are just too ridiculous to comprehend.

    Next time they want to do such experiments they souldn´t take mums...maybe there are some other volunteers...01:

    To be serious: the medicative effect of two bottles beers or two glasses of wine (espacially women with coronary heart disease) is a proven fact.

    I doubt it was "just to prove".
    Its a way to fame, and thru that media money, like that supersize me guy.


    Wouldnt be terribly surprised if she enters one of those "make me younger with great beauty products" shows soon... for even more cash

    I agree with Xanthochroid.

    I don't drink. I am in my childbearing years anyway, so it would be pretty stupid, jeopordizing my children's health for some bad tasting drink.

    I guess its one of those things like coffee - you have to have a taste for it, and I don't. Have fun aging people!

    Intoxication is not worth the health risks in my opinion. I try to keep my body as free as it can be from pollutants such as alcohol and drugs. Some may speak of the significance beer holds in Germanic cuisine, but I personally don't enjoy it. But, to each his own.
