    Effects of acute alcohol intoxications in South Africa

    * Alcohol misuse is causally implicated in a range of chronic health problems (e.g. cirrhosis of the liver). However, many of the primary effects of alcohol misuse occur from episodes of acute alcohol intoxication.
    * Acute alcohol intoxication is associated with increased mortality and morbidity arising from intentional and non-intentional injuries.
    * Acute alcohol intoxication is also associated with unsafe sexual practices and increased risk of contracting a sexually transmitted disease.
    * Alcohol misuse, combined with poor nutritional status, increases susceptibility to opportunistic diseases by compromising the immune system.
    * The misuse of alcohol during pregnancy has been linked to fetal alcohol syndrome in infants.
    * Alcohol misuse also impacts on the criminal justice system, with evidence of associations between drinking at risky levels, committing crime, or being a victim of crime.
