Alcohol-induced blackouts not a joke: Research

17 Dec 2014

According to new research, blackouts are likely to occur when the drinker is vulnerable to a range of additional dangerous consequences. Blackouts occur when a person's blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is likely significantly above what is considered "legal intoxication".The higher one's alcohol levels are, the greater the chance of a blackout.
