(ORDO NEWS) — If you watched the movie “One More” with Mads Mikkelsen, then you probably thought about repeating the experience of his friends. Is it worth doing such an experiment in real life, and what will happen?
The experiment in the film “One More” ended not entirely successfully. But if you could effectively maintain 0.5 ppm of alcohol in your body, would you become more efficient and efficient?
In Danish director Thomas Vinterberg’s latest film, One More Round, friends Martin, Tommy, Peter and Nikolai agree to do a little experiment: they will stay moderately drunk all day to see how it will affect their social and professional activities.
The main rule of the experiment was initially that the blood alcohol content should not fall below 0.05%, and you can only drink during working hours. Of course, the heroes do not stop there and constantly increase the dose, gradually turning into inveterate alcoholics.
But what if you could strictly adhere to the basic rule of this experiment effectively microdosing small amounts of alcohol during work hours to increase productivity
What would happen? In fact, many factors affect blood alcohol concentration, including the alcohol content of a drink, how quickly you drink it, your gender, body mass index, and liver health. On average, 0.05% is roughly equivalent to a 70 kg person drinking one pint (568 ml) of 4% beer or a large glass (250 ml) of wine.
Because alcohol is a toxin, the body works to eliminate it through breath, sweat, and urine, so it would be difficult to consistently maintain a concentration of 0.05%.
This would require regular, measured alcohol consumption throughout the day, which means that very soon you would exceed the safe recommended daily and weekly allowance.
Low doses of alcohol may have some beneficial effects. Laboratory studies have shown that at low doses, a person relaxes and feels confident in himself, and also loses the focus that occurs with mild intoxication.
This can lead to improved creativity in problem solving, better foreign language skills , better retention of information, and better processing skills for certain types of information. However, this reduces the level of analytical skills that are needed in most jobs.
This all sounds good, of course, but before you consider doing this experiment yourself, remember that these were all controlled laboratory studies using single doses of alcohol, and there are some questions about how tests and assessments in these studies correspond to extralaboratory reality.
