Question and answer
How alcoholism is a human factor that maycause accidents
Alcohol use is a major contributing factor for head injuries, motor vehicle accidents, violence, and assaults. [ Beyond money, there are also significant social costs to both the alcoholic and their family and friends.[43] For instance, alcohol consumption by a pregnant woman can lead to fetal alcohol syndrome an incurable and damaging condition. In a study done on Korean immigrants in Canada, they reported alcohol was even an integral part of their meal, and is the only time solo drinking should occur. They also believe alcohol is necessary at any social event as it helps conversations
start.[143] Caucasians have a much lower abstinence rate (11.8%) and much higher tolerance to symptoms (3.4±2.45 drinks) of alcohol than Chinese (33.4% and 2.2±1.78 drinks respectively). Also, the more acculturation there is between cultures, the more influenced the culture is to adopt Caucasians drinking practices.[144] Peyote, a psychoactive agent, has even shown promise in treating alcoholism. This is interesting because alcohol replaced peyote as Native American’s psychoactive agent of choice in rituals when peyote was outlawed.[145] ]
