How Dangerous is Alcohol?

leave a comment »


Recently, Professor Nutt, released a report, stating that Alcohol was more dangerous than Heroin, which hit the media for six!

The question is how dangerous is alcohol?  The reason we ask the question is we’ve seen Trainspotting, and know that Heroin kills, but everyone drinks alcohol, but they don’t all drop dead!

The science bit shows that people who die of Alcohol poisoning will tend to have more than 0.05% alcohol in their blood.  To get that sort of figure, you would need to drink 24 units of alcohol in around an hour or so.

In real terms, that would be a bottle of Vodka or 12 pints of beer, or 4 bottles of wine drunk in an hour or two.

So how about all the other drugs?  How dangerous are they?

Guess I’m going to have to read up because I don’t plan to do a practical test!
