For Educators

This resource contains a lot of information about how drinking too much alcohol can affect certain body systems. As such, it can be used as a stand-alone resource for students to use when conducting research on alcohol's impacts on their body systems. It also can be used in conjunction with lessons on alcohol abuse or human health. It would fit in nicely with any lessons on physical health, basic functions, or human development. In addition, the e-book would work well with lessons where students are asked to assess the social trade-offs associated with their personal habits and behavior.
