Food slows down the absorption of alchohol?

    Food slows down the absorption of alchohol??

    1. The presence of food in the stomach, particularly fats, greatly slows down the absorption of alchohol and drugs into the body. This what I've read in a report on the internet, but I don't know the reason why the rate of absorption slows down. Can anyone tell me the reason???


    3. Thanks in advance. This is only a question which I want to figure out the reason.

    Googi, we can only help you if you show us that you have put some thought/effort into answering the question yourself. Do you have any thoughts/ideas, why the absorption rate depends strongly on the presence of food?
