NETWORK ARTICLE - Women and Alcohol: To your health?

Alcohol is a favourite drug for many people, and women may be having more problems with alcohol than many of us would like to think. Journalist Ann Dowsett Johnston spent a year talking with women, researchers and policy-makers to learn why women drink, and how alcohol affects us differently from men. The results are unsettling.
