Why should you never drink on an empty stomach?

Experts say eating food before drinking
retains alcohol in the system where it is
absorbed slowly into the blood stream.
This gives the liver more time to break the
alcohol down. Otherwise , it is directly
absorbed without being broken down into
simpler compounds.
This can be harmful for the liver and
general health. The kick comes when the
alcohol is absorbed into the bloodstream
directly and slows down the central
nervous system; hence the reflexes and reactions are slower.
