Alcohol, or ethyl alcohol (ethanol), refers to the intoxicating ingredient found in wine, beer and hard liquor. Alcohol arises naturally from carbohydrates when certain micro-organisms metabolize them in the absence of oxygen, called fermentation. Beer, wine and other liquor contain different amounts of alcohol. The amount of alcohol in distilled liquor is known as ?proof?. Proof refers to the amount of alcohol in the liquor; for example, 100 proof liquor contains 50% alcohol, 40 proof liquor contains 20% alcohol, and so on. Traditional wine has approximately 8-14% alcohol, while regular beer has 4-6% alcohol. Recent studies show that moderate use of alcohol may have a beneficial effect on the coronary system. In general, for healthy people, one drink per day for women and no more than two drinks per day for men would be considered the maximum amount of alcohol consumption to be considered moderate use. (By ?healthy? people, we are referring to non-pregnant women, individuals not addicted to alcohol, and people without pre-existing medical conditions, among others). However, the amount of alcohol that a person can drink safely is highly individual, depending on genetics, age, sex, weight and family history, etc. A ?drink? is considered to be:

Bladder Control for Women
Why talk about bladder control?
Women of all ages have bladder control problems. Some younger women find they can't hold their urine after having a baby. Others have problems when they stop having periods. Many women over the age of 75 also have bladder control problems. You may feel ashamed about bladder control problems. Remember that it's a medical problem and it's not your fault. Millions of women have the same problem. Don't believe people who tell you that urine leakage is normal. It isn't. Most of the time it can be improved. Your health care team can help you. Nearly everyone with a bladder control problem can be helped. Call your clinic and find out how.
Where can you go for help?
You can do many things to help improve your bladder control. Talk to your family doctor or nurse If you have a more difficult case, you may need to see a urologist (yoor-ALL-uh-jist). Urologists are experts in bladder and urine problems. Some urologists specialize in the female urinary tract. A gynaecologist (guy-nuh-CALL-uh-jist) is a doctor who treats problems of the female system. Your gynaecologist can also help you with bladder control. Your doctor might also want you to see a

Alcohol and Urine Screens
If someone has been drinking alcoholically and stops for treatment, how long after stopping will it (alcohol) continue to show up in urine screens? Thank you. The ethanol disposal rate in a 150-pound human is about 0.5 ounce of ethanol per hour, which corresponds to 12 ounces of beer (1 can), 4 ounces of wine (1 glass), or once ounce of hard liquor (one shot). So, depending on how much you've had to drink, you can calculate how long it will take to clear the alcohol so that it doesn't show up in a urine screen. Dr. Ken Krul

Things You Need To Know Use of alcohol is widely accepted in the United States, even though alcoholism is a major public health problem. Alcohol has been called Americas legal drug of choice. As we all know, alcohol can have a disastrous impact on health, job performance, and family life. Alcohol is the primary cause of liver disease, a condition with devastating nutritional consequences. Alcohol is related to half of all traffic fatalities and half of all homicides in the United States. And individuals with drinking problems have higher rates of divorces and suicide than that of the general population. Alcohol exerts a direct toxic effect on the brain, heart, bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract, and especially the liver. The effects of alcohol on the liver can lead to the development of fatty liver, alcoholic hepatitis and fibrosis, and cirrhosis. Because the liver processes everything we eat, liver damage profoundly affects nutrition.

AVOIDING THE WRATH OF GRAPES
Products claim to prevent morning-after ailments Whether you’re a mild, moderate or heavy drinker, morning-after hangovers don’t discriminate. According to the Mayo Clinic Web site, nearly 75 percent of people who drink to intoxication experience a hangover the next day. Because so many people experience the symptoms, many look for any way they can to prevent or treat hangovers, including over-the-counter pills which claim to help prevent the condition. From the "all-natural" pill RU-21 to a patch called Sober X, they each use a different method to reduce the effects caused by overdrinking.

Research has shown that drinking alcohol in moderate amounts can be beneficial to the health, for men over the age of 40 and women in the menopause having a couple of small drinks per day can help in the prevention of heart disease. Having said this it is also a fact that over a quarter of men and one in every six women drink enough alcohol to put their health at risk.
What is a unit?
A single unit of alcohol is 8 grams of pure alcohol regardless of the amount of liquid the alcohol is contained in; the strength of the alcohol is measured by the percentage of alcohol per volume. To make things easier to understand one unit of alcohol is:
  • About half a pint of regular strength lager, beer or cider. A 25 ml measure in a pub of any spirit or a small glass of sherry or port. 125 ml of wine.
Alcohol dependency
People are said to be dependent on alcohol when it is drunk in large quantities and not just socially, there are a number of ways that a Doctor can tell if patients have drink problems and have become dependent on alcohol. The Doctor will ask the patient screening questions such as the amount of alcohol you drink and the frequency, if the amount you drink, does drinking lead to problems in your social life, with relationships and at work. You are said to have a dependency on alcohol if you have experienced three or more of the following in a year:

Send Page To a Friend ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTES OR IMITATIONS Naturally, success of RU-21 resulted in dozens of copycat products being rushed to market. Many of them blatantly deceive consumers by claiming superior efficacy because of a number of added ingredients.
The truth is that adding a bunch of extra ingredients, even if they have demonstrated benefits of their own, DOES not automatically enhance the formula that has a specific biochemical purpose. If it did, why not use multivitamins for every need? In fact, adding ingredients that have no history of clinical testing on account of interaction with alcohol may result in an adverse biochemical reaction that could cause significant harm to a consumer. RU-21 is a product of many years of research. Its clinically proven efficacy rests on synergistic effects of carefully combined ingredients in meticulously calculated amounts.
