New fad on campus is "Drunkorexia" — combining the
worst aspects of binge drinking and eating disorders. It is a
condition by which college students skip meals to control
their weight, saving both money (and calories) they can then
use to drink. A new study from the University of Missouri
found that 16 percent of college students engage in the
practice, including three times as many females as males.
A new "stay sober" tablet reportedly is under development in
Australia. The pill, which limits the effect of alcohol on the
brain, is being tested on mice — who showed no signs of
becoming "tipsy," despite being administered enough alcohol
to make them "fall over," reports Britain's Telegraph
Clifton Vial, 52, wound up stuck in a snowdrift off a rural
highway in eastern Alaska.  All he had was a few cans of
Coors Light, frozen solid.  Fortunately even Coors Light
contains calories to keep a person functioning.  Vial says he
ate the beer like beans from a can. He cut the lids off and
dug it out with a knife. He has fully recovered.

In a large study of older adults, University of Texas
researchers found that mortality rates were significantly
lower for drinkers than for teetotalers. Among drinkers,
heavy partakers (4-plus drinks a day) had a higher mortality
rate than did moderate ones (1–3 drinks a day). Still, even
the heavy drinkers lived longer than non-drinkers
