FALSE

Alcohol does not affect men and women equally. Research indicates that alcohol’s effects on females tend to be stronger and last longer. This is because women produce a smaller amount of alcohol dehydrogenase, an enzyme that breaks down alcohol in the stomach. As a result, women reach a peak BAC about 20 percent higher than men do. As well Body Weight too affects the percentage of alcohol in your blood. A heavier person has more body fluids with which the alcohol will mix, and thus will have a lower BAC.
