Australians have always been known as a nation of drinkers. At festive times that consumption tends to go up. As we get older, our system tends to be less robust. For example, our fat mass compared to our muscle mass tends to go up so, therefore, our blood alcohol concentration levels go up. And as we age we can also be on medications that tend to interact with alcohol.
