( ) It is not common knowledge that the consequences of alcohol consumption are maldistributed between men and women.
The author provides numerous studies and thorough research into the topic. I learned that not only are women more prone to develop an addiction to alcohol, it causes more damage to their organs than the same consumption would for a man. From memory loss and other mental defects that can occur, (such as dementia,) to physical issues such as organ failure, cardiac problems, and cancer risk increase.
It doesn’t gloss over the short-term consequences either, such as increasing mood disturbances or hurting relationships.
I loved this book and would recommend it to any woman out there who knows she parties too hard.
