Summary
Explores the underlying reasons for alcohol abuse, the third largest health problem after heart disease in the United States. Shows that drinking is linked to sexual interests, the desire to relax or to overcome loneliness, and discusses lack of uniform state and local laws regulating use of alcohol. Interviews experts such as Maurice Chafetz who advocates removal of age barriers for drinking which would remove the attraction that such a taboo creates.
