Alcohol & Altitude

It is commonly thought that higher altitudes will cause intoxication more quickly than at sea level.  Studies for Federal Aviation Administration do not confirm the common belief.  Additionally, for those living at higher altitudes the body compensates for the thinner air by producing more blood in which to carry oxygen.  More blood by weight provides more dilution of alcohol.
