What Does Alcohol Do to Your Body? – Infographic

What Alcohol Does to Your Body

Last week I featured an infographic on what happens to your body when you drink a cup of coffee (found here).  Following up on that theme, today’s infographic explains what happens to your body as you consume alcohol.  Each drink consumed (defined at the top of the graphic) will increase both the visual external impairments and affect internal changes in your body.  It is important to know and understand how alcohol functions in the body to know when to not only stop drinking yourself, but when someone around you may need serious help.

Average Lifespan of Animals – “Retro” Infographic

Average Lifespan of Animals

I’m not sure when this one came out, but my research shows that having been created for Compton’s Pictured Encyclopedia it was anywhere from 1922-1968.  My guess is one of the editions from the 1950s.  Regardless, this is a great graphic for visualizing the lifespans of different animals.  The numbers on the timeline correspond to years and while it’s not as accurate or comprehensive as we might be used to today, it’s fun too look back at the evolution of graphic data displays.
