alcohol/ 酒精/ (jiǔ jīnɡ)


A: Are you a person who likes to drink?

你是一个喜欢喝酒的人吗?

(nǐshì yīɡè xǐhuān hējiǔ de rénma?)

B: I really do enjoy drinking. I feel that drinking a little allows my being to become more relaxed.

我挺喜欢喝酒的,觉得喝一点酒能让整个人变得更放松。

(wǒ tǐnɡxǐhuān hējiǔ de, juédé hēyīdiǎn jiǔ nénɡrànɡ  zhěnɡɡèrén biàndé ɡènɡ fànɡsōnɡ.)

A: You know that excess drinking isn't good for your liver because 90 percent of the alcohol has to be metabolized by the liver. 

那你知道过度饮酒对肝脏非常不好,因为将近百分之九十的酒精都要靠肝脏代谢。

(nà nǐ zhīdào ɡuòdù yǐnjiǔ duì ɡānzānɡ fēichánɡ bùhǎo,yīnwéi jiānɡjìn bǎifēnzhījiǔshí de jiǔjīnɡ dōu yàokào ɡānzānɡ dàixiè.)

B: I also know that when comparing two people of the same weight but different sexes, men's dilution levels will be higher.

我还知道,如果是同样体重,不同性别的两个人,男性的酒精稀释指数更高。

(wǒ háizhīdào, rúɡuǒ shì tónɡyànɡ tǐzhònɡ, bùtónɡ xìnɡbié de liǎnɡ ɡèrén, nánxìnɡ de jiǔjīnɡ xīshì zhǐshù ɡènɡɡāo.)

A: But women sober up faster than men, because their livers occupy more of their body mass. 

但是女性的醒酒速度比男性要快,因为她们肝脏占比更大。

(dànshì nǚxìnɡ de xǐnɡjiǔ sùdù bǐ nánxìnɡ yào kuài,yīnwéi tāmén ɡānzānɡ zhànbǐ ɡènɡdà.)

B: Really? Well all in all, excessive drinking will bring a moment of happiness, but the damage to the body is forever. Do you think so?

是吗,但总而言之,过度饮酒也许会带来一时的快乐,但对身体的伤害是永久的。你觉得呢?

(shìma,dàn zǒnɡéryánzhī,ɡuòdùyǐnjiǔ yěxǔ huì dàilái yīshí de kuàilè, dàn duì shēntǐ de shānɡhài shì yǒnɡjiǔ de.nǐ juédé ne?)
