No Safe Amount: Women, Alcohol and Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (cc)


Interweaving interviews with real teens who have experimented with alcohol, animated sequences demonstrating how a growing fetus is affected by alcohol use inside the womb, plus an up-close and personal look at a young woman growing up afflicted with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS), this program clearly demonstrates the unique risks that alcohol poses to women. One girl tells about being raped after a night of drinking. Another, about almost dying after binge drinking and being in a coma for three days. Program follows the girls as they learn the impact of alcohol use on women’s bodies-how women metabolize alcohol differently than men; why size and gender matter when it comes to drinking; the biology of alcohol addiction and the link to permanent brain damage; and the indelible horror of FAS.
