[tps_title]Myth 13: Alcohol warms you up[/tps_title]
You do feel warmer after taking that shot of Tequila, but that’s because alcohol makes blood rise to the surface. In reality, it actually lowers body temperature from deep within. So the next time you’re stuck in the Alps, light a bonfire instead. You have better chances of avoiding frostbite this way. Save the alcohol for a later time. And make sure you’re bundled up and cozy when you do get to drink.
