Michael Savage explains why Native Americans get drunk easily

FWIW, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) contradicts Savage’s claims…

Despite the fact that more Native American people die of alcohol-related causes than do any other ethnic group in the United States, research shows that there is no difference in the rates of alcohol metabolism and enzyme patterns between Native Americans and Whites.

Myth: American Indians metabolize alcohol differently than other people groups (such as Caucasians, African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, etc.). American Indians have a biological weakness to alcohol that others don’t have.

Fact: Metabolism of alcohol among all people groups is related to prior drinking history and body weight, not race or ethnicity.
