If you're a guy, and you want shriveled shrunken testicles, and a nice set of man-boobs, keep drinking. Your testosterone levels drop with excessive alcohol use, as does your sperm count. You won't have to worry about sex issues, because you will probably be impotent and unable to have sex anyway.
Female alcoholics often quit menstruating, begin early menopause, or menstruate without ovulation. If they get pregnant, they often miscarry. The babies who survive often suffer from fetal alcohol syndrome.
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome – 100% Real, 100% Preventable
In 1968, Christy Ulleland, M.D. Chief Resident at Harborview Medical Center, University of Washington first discovered the link between prenatal alcohol exposure and adverse outcomes in infants. In January 1968, Dr. Ulleland received funding to conduct an 18-month study to scientifically assess her clinical observation that infants born to alcoholic women had impaired outcomes. Dr. Ulleland's conclusion: “Chronic alcoholism can be appropriately added to the list of maternal factors that create an unhealthy intrauterine environment for the developing fetus; the consequences of which may be life long.”
The number one cause of mental retardation in America is women drinking alcohol while pregnant. If you are pregnant, or planning to become pregnant, you must absolutely not touch a drop of alcohol. There is no safe amount of alcohol at any time during pregnancy.
It is an absolute fact that even the slightest amount of alcohol, depending upon the metabolism of the mother, can cause irreversible birth defects in her child, especially in the first trimester of pregnancy. A baby can emerge from a drinking mother's womb appearing perfectly normal on the outside, but damage to the baby's brain is permanent and irreversible. FAS is the most direct cause of mental retardation in America. FAS is also 100% preventable.
