Ug, I went to a birthday party for a 9yo girl today. There will be alcohol tonight.

@mike When your body breaks down the alcohol it creates something called Acetaldehyde. It's toxic and cancerous. Your hangover is you being sick by literally being poisoned.

Ten percent of all European men who dies from cancer is caused by past or current alcohol consumption.

And even if you don't die from cancer, you have more than 200 other diseases (like liver failure and diabetes) to look forward to.

There's no safe consumption of alcohol either. You're screwed no matter what.
