San Diego, CA – WEBWIRE

Walter R. Hoge published a blog post about alcohol consumption and alcohol abuse.

Dr. Walter R. Hoge, author of the books “Easter: McEaster Valley” and “Thoughts on My Thoughts: Tales That Wagged This Veterinarian”, uploaded a blog post titled “Alcohol, Hamsters and Us,” which explores alcohol consumption and alcohol dependence.

The author wrote “Alcohol, Hamsters and Us” in a manner similar to his stories in “Thoughts on My Thoughts.” He brings up certain scientific laboratory experiments and statistical data and makes references to animals and even church history. He injects everything necessary to allow readers a fun and entertaining read – and something to ponder on that could spur them to action.

In “Alcohol, Hamsters and Us,” Dr. Hoge discusses the high alcohol abuse rate among Alaska Natives. He explores the reasons why Alaska Natives rank the highest among all ethnic groups in the U.S., as well as why Alaska ranks among the national leaders in per capita alcohol consumption. (As if that’s not enough, Alaska also has the heaviest alcohol drinkers in the animal kingdom living in their state.)

The aforementioned subject matters allow Dr. Hoge to further delve into the subject of alcohol metabolism. Readers should find this subject interesting as the author explains:

  • How humankind developed the knack for consuming alcohol
  • What do scientific studies say about the modern human condition with regards to ethanol
  • Why do the recommended alcohol consumption guidelines differ for men and women
  • Why drinking less is better for one’s health
  • How does the hoarding lifestyle of hamsters influence their alcohol tolerance
  • What the authorities of the LDS Church said about abstinence and moderation

Readers could find Alcohol, Hamsters and Us fun and insightful. The blog post is something that could push the temperance movement to double their efforts in promoting temperance or complete abstinence from alcohol consumption in places such as Alaska – and direct the concerned state and federal leaders to address (the social effects of) alcoholism, especially among the Native American tribes.
