Product Description

    Details

    Alcohol is the most commonly abused substance in the U.S. Every year, about 80,000 people die from alcohol-related causes, making it the third leading preventable cause of death in the U.S. One of the key elements in reducing this number is early education and prevention efforts. This presentation card is a smaller version of our presentation display that provides a comprehensive overview of alcohol and its effects, ensuring that your audience will understand just how dangerous alcohol abuse can be.

    The card begins by noting that ethanol is the active ingredient in alcoholic drinks. It's a depressant and it's also addictive. The size of an alcoholic drink doesn't matter, but the amount of ethanol in a drink does. There is the same amount of ethanol in 12 ounces of beer as there is in 5 ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of liquor. 

    In the short term, drinking causes diminished reasoning abilities, lowered inhibitions, impaired coordination, blurred vision, slower reaction time, memory loss, nausea, and vomiting. The long-term effects of drinking are much more serious, however. Individuals who abuse alcohol may develop liver or heart disease, cancer, brain cell damage, gastric disorders, or alcoholism.

    There is a difference between abusing alcohol and alcoholism. Alcohol abuse may cause health, personal, and legal problems as well as physical addiction. If addiction develops, alcoholism follows. Users become dependent on alcohol and will suffer from withdrawal symptoms if they stop drinking. Alcoholism is a disease.

    Blood alcohol content (BAC) is a measurement  used to determine the amount of alcohol in the bloodstream. A BAC of 0.08 is considered legally drunk, and a BAC of 0.30 may cause alcohol poisoning or death. Blood alcohol content may vary from person to person even if the same amount of alcohol has been consumed. BAC can be affected by an individual's gender, weight, and recent food intake.

    BAC is used to determine whether an individual is illegally operating a motor vehicle. Most states have legal precedents establishing a BAC of 0.02 to 0.08 as driving under the influence (DUI). A DUI conviction may result in fines, jail time, and a criminal record. Drunk driving is the #1 killer of people under 21, and most states have a zero tolerance policy for drivers under the age of 21 with a measurable BAC.

    Binge drinking has received a substantial amount of media attention in recent years as it is a common habit for those under 21. 90% of underage drinkers binge drink and binge drinkers are 14 times more likely to drive drunk. Binge drinking is defined as rapidly having 4 or more alcoholic drinks on the same occasion. It may lead to alcohol poisoning, liver disease, and alcoholism.

    This card emphasizes that it is illegal for anyone under 21 to consume alcoholic drinks. Underage drinkers could end up paying fines, losing their driver's license, or going to jail. And for those who feel that their drinking habits are taking over, support groups, doctors, and counselors can help with recovery.
