DANGERS OF ALCOHOL
We often hear news stories about drug overdoses, about the rise in drug-related fatalities across America, and how we should respond to them. But what about alcohol overdoses, alcohol poisoning? It’s important to understand that alcohol poisonings do occur, and that they are extremely dangerous. It’s essential to know what the signs and symptoms of alcohol overdoses are and what to do if a loved one or friend has binge drunk to the point of an alcohol overdose.
As it turns out, a pretty disturbing news story in USA Today is causing a lot of people to rethink copious alcohol consumption while on vacation. The article talked about a case out of Costa Rica, in which “tainted” batches of alcohol caused 25 deaths and more than two-dozen non-fatal poisoning incidents.
