According to a research, women are drinking as much alcohol as men. This increasing habit of drinking is damaging their health as a result. The research done in United Kingdom shows how much drinking can be harmful for women. Though drinking is not at all beneficial for anyone-either men or women, it harms women more than men because of biological reasons.
With the passage of time, women have also joined in ‘after-work drinking culture‘. According to the Guardian, Office for National Statistics figures from 2011 show that women in management and professional jobs drink more than the average woman and drink more on weekdays in UK.
Female’s bodies do not tolerate alcohol as men’s because women have a higher fat to water ratio. Because they have less water, the alcohol in their system remains more concentrated. As compared to men, women also have smaller livers which makes it harder to process alcohol safely.
