Submerging your feet in alcohol will not get you drunk

Researchers found that the Danish myth that it is possible to get drunk by submerging your feet in alcohol is just that: a myth.

Research in the Christmas issue of bmj.com explodes the Danish myth that it is possible to get drunk by submerging your feet in alcohol.

Three adult volunteers took part in the study. None of them suffered from any chronic skin or liver disease and they were not addicted to alcohol or psychoactive drugs. The participants were not members of any local Alcoholics Anonymous groups and had not been implicated in any serious accidents or socially embarrassing events related to alcohol in the week prior to the study.
