Horizon: Is Binge Drinking That Bad?
Is occasional binge drinking that much worse than drinking small amounts of alcohol each day? Considering it is a drug that has been enjoyed since the dawn of civilisation, the science around alcohol is surprisingly vague and conflicting. Doctors and genetically identical twins Chris and Xand van Tulleken investigate the latest science and put their own bodies to the test to see how alcohol really affects us. You’ll never look at a night out, or your hangover, in the same way again…
