Alcohol is a major hazard to consumers. Alcohol is made from grapes, grains, and other berries, that have been fermented and distilled into a liquid. Used in small doses, alcohol is enjoyed by many. But if a person drinks too much, it becomes a major hazard to the body. A standard drink has approximately 1.2 tablespoons of pure alcohol. Some examples of standard drinks are a twelve ounce can of beer, five ounces of table wine, or a 1.2 ounce shot of hard liquor. Once the ratio of blood to alcohol reaches a certain amount, the brain becomes intoxicated. Once the brain is intoxicated, usual control of actions is lost. At first the only side effect of alcohol is the person feeling more relaxed and carefree.
