Is this true? If so, how?Alan Mazonowicz, Brussels, Belgium It is true. Reducing the air pressure over the drink (by sucking it up the straw) causes a proportion of the alcohol to vapouclimb. The alcohol vapour diffsupplies straight into the bloodstream in the mouth, and starts "working" nearly automatically. The liquid alcohol gets right into the bloodstream much later, in the stomach and also intestines, and also slower. Simon Blake, Shrewsbury England Some of the alchohol evapoprices from the drink and ends up in your lungs as you breathe. From tbelow, it has actually a straight path into the bloodstream (a lot as the nicotine does in cigarette smoke) fairly than the tortuous course through your digestive system. Paul Wright, Basildon UK Neither of the above answers rings true. Sudepend the volume of alcohol vapour in the percentage of straw not occupied by liquid have to be miniscule. This evaporation should also occur in the normal means of drinking. I think it"s much even more most likely that you just drink faster without realising. Alan Mazonowicz, Brussels Belgium I disagree aacquire, there is a room at the ago of the throat that has actually a really thin membrane and also alcohol passes throughout it incredibly easily. Drinking with a straw outcomes in less liquid being taken in each time you swpermit. This implies that you swenable more regularly and the liquid is in call through the membrane for longer.
