According to 20/20, this is not just a sexist myth. Men are biologically better equipped to drink more than women. Take that ladies. 😉
Turns out us guys have more of an enzyme in the lining of our stomachs that, when it sees alcohol, begins to metabolize it immediately. This means that only about ½ of the alcohol men drink gets into the blood stream. Ain’t science fun? Thanks, John Stossel!
