Abstract

This article considers two sets of data describing the extent of consumption of white spirit drinks by a sample of patients who abuse alcohol and the analysis of drink antioxidant content. We present a proposal for discussion that the rapid consumption of alcoholic drinks, low in protective antioxidant compounds, may potentially be more damaging to the body.
