Why can't women drink as much as men? It turns out the reason is scientific. When it comes to alcohol, men and women are not created equal. The effect of alcohol in women is stronger than in men and it's also interesting to note that women who drink are more likely to suffer from significant alcohol problems than men. Women's bodies just aren't able to process alcohol as well as men. Does anyone else find it interesting that a lot of these 'fact' videos come from law offices?
