Before the New Year binge, learn what alcohol does to our body (Video)

It’s inevitable one would usually say: there’s a party and everyone’s drinking alcohol, so you join in the spree, especially when you’re welcoming a New Year. The next thing you know, you can hardly walk and talk straight from having too much to drink. Worse, you pass out and never remember a thing the next day. So what’s alcohol got to do with it?

The American Chemical Society’s new Reactions episode shows us what are inside the alcoholic beverages that mess with our brains and body. Check out the video below:

We know it’s one of the merriest times of the year, but hey, you’re never too old to forget: Drink moderately. Happy New Year! 

NewsNarratives (formerly Wired Correspondence) aims to become an independent and progressive online magazine that will focus on underreported social issues and human interest stories in the Philippines and elsewhere written in narrative, longform journalism. We intend to extensively cover stories of people and communities whose struggles are left undercovered, unheard, or unaddressed by the governments or other institutions. But as a progressive publication, we focus less on what these institutions failed to do for them, rather focus more on what can still be done. Then again, it’s not all about the failures and struggles. We also want good stories that inspire and give hope. So, we will feature stories of people who won life’s struggles in hopes of learning from them and of ordinary individuals who are contributing extraordinary work whether to their family or community—yes, the many unsung heroes in our society. We aim to help and inspire people through our storytelling, by producing content that targets the heart to feel and provokes the brain to act on it—in a good way. We start all these in our own backyard, the Philippines, with a dream of pursuing elsewhere.
