Injured? Best be Drunk!
Being drunk makes you more accident prone, but trauma patients are more likely to survive if they were drunk at the time of their injury. Studies found that 7% who came in sober died of their injuries vs. 1% of drunk victims. Drunk victims were discharged sooner as well. Scientists cannot explain why this occurs, but they - and the sane - recommend not getting drunk in the first place to avoid the ensuring injury.
