You continue to conversation about government intervention. And faith healing parents choose not to get their children. Any help. And should you let either of religion or a government tell you how to treat your children. And as somebody has to be an advocate for the child -- and sinuous blindly trusting human doctor. But condemned those that would place that level of trust in their god. -- condemning anybody I just don't know why you can't. Prayed floors and healing and a dedicated to the doctors well. Another -- says how do you know. When you're trusting this doctor. That he didn't -- she didn't graduate with a unit they did they know more about it and I do I guarantee that. Staking -- doctors doctor Corey slow Lewis joins us right now it's here. Emergency medicine at Vanderbilt university medical standard talk about a story there's -- USA today yesterday according to the Tennessee bureau of investigation. You know -- get all the attention the date rape drug and when it does happen it's big news. But Michael -- regionals supervisor for the Tennessee bureau of investigation says rupees are very rarely. If ever seen in real life more a TV or movie concoction and and that the main. Culprit when it comes to date rape is plain -- mister -- him on a doctor how are you. Good morning. It's interesting I am following this story that graduating with a deep mine. Well now. -- -- Doctor did we're talking about faith healing -- those things that even -- that case you still know more about it than I did so on and you know there's only doctor there they graduated with a not 2.0 grade point average presuming that the -- the test again and certified. Did him -- his medicine and you know minus a kidney at three of us in the room kidney in the demons doctor and go on with the is that another much about it and I don't mean to drag you know national let's talk about. Rupees and alcohol. And deep rate and people being victimized when there under the influence. Well certainly their date rape drugs group final group he's. GH the -- the sedatives including many drugs that people use either personally. Or for anxiety but it is without -- -- the number one date rape drug by floor is just now. Always been that way. I don't know it's. We'd been that way yet there have been great studies on it over time. But when -- first came out. -- it really got a lot of play because there was this mysterious drug and people were complaining that they might have been raped and all of a -- Nazis began to show it. But there's very little group and on the United States. The vast majority of women who -- raped are raped because they're intoxicated. With alcohol. -- and they are surveillance are somewhat intoxicated. But these are women that are taken advantage of because they are really drunk some of them more many of them -- unconscious. Or to the point of apple intoxication. That they either increases or -- Don't -- because they're going to be actions have been lowered so much and they are supposed to dated. -- clear this up from myself and I presume doctor Clovis at no point. Are we -- now woman gets raped is responsible. For that because she was. Is drawn -- or intoxicated because nobody ever has the right to take advantage. Some money elsewhere just talking about causal factors. And it may be if you have a child at college is something along those lines it might be some information that you would need -- And -- have frank responsible talk with a along those lines doctor Clovis is there a correlation between age when it comes to this and and alcohol and victims. Well most date rapes occur. In the younger patients these are usually high school and college students. But it's certainly no one is immune. From the great piece by -- donated just. They're -- proximity and college campuses but alcohol and lots of party in. But note that can occur. In any -- And when we talk about -- I mean some people only think of rape as Europe cut and on the street by knife or gun. And forced into an Alley com -- -- unfortunately that does occur and it's terrific. Much of great it is. So called the decree where a woman she is intoxicated to the point that she can no longer consent. They can no longer has voluntary control over what's occurring to work. And -- one cannot consent. To sexual and of course that's great. Com when it comes of the legal standard for that and united in -- -- maybe I don't know some don't know I -- At. At all and don't start that stuff but you would you would think that. The standard of proof is going to be much. You know as it is a lot of times when there's not violence involved -- lord -- -- let's put it that way rate comes down he said she said but if if the woman is intoxicated I would think it it might make it harder to prove that it wasn't consensual. Well one of horrible things about rape is a violent act a purse and then it becomes difficult to prove. I think rather than worrying about which you could prove rape or not the most important thing a woman can do. He used to be careful. To trust no one really -- actually knows. Who she's with -- very well. And even then not agreeing to the point that one. Cannot control their mind their body their emotions and control the ability to consent or not consent to -- political. Can you hang on -- thing as when we come back on a talk TA as a physician about. What you would tell people about drinking responsibly Ian and you know I used to drink on anymore but back in the day would happen is. Cancer repeats itself a lot of times as you drink your judgment goes down you decide to drink more. So how do you keep from -- at that point and what would you tell. Parent with a child in college you're going off. Lessons on how to drink responsibly in and how to keep it from getting the point where you so polluted you can't protect yourself -- 822 doctor. -- close slow this is our guest chairman -- emergency medicine at Vanderbilt university medical senators and that. -- a way alcohol is. The drug the influence under which the most people of vast majority of rapes -- eight when he too timely traffic. Robinson I Tommy Tucker 826. Doctor -- -- slow this -- guests here of emergency medicine. At Vanderbilt university medical center of this head of the Tennessee bureau of investigations. And you know like groupies get the attention -- Alcohol that's the thing that contributes to most date rape the drug that does any doctor how would you say to people in terms of how to drink responsibly in candidate. No win is enough and try to put themselves in that situation. I think -- Pekingese too drug and alcohol is a drug he ought to know little but that -- metabolism and your body handles it so in general. -- normal sized men can drink three drinks within an hour before they're legally intoxicated and then they can metabolize. One drink per hour so you need to keep -- numbers below that if you wanted to stay. Below the legal limit of alcohol which is eighty programs percent or zero point zero -- Blood levels for women it somewhere between two wintry drinks and once again. Wondering per hour so -- happened three -- -- drinks in the first hour and to report earnings in the second half hour. -- I'd be surprised that your both legally intoxicated -- could have impaired judgment. And I know that many people that drink lots more than that takes -- I don't even feel it. Over time your body begins to would you to increasing levels. But unless you're gonna be you know -- typically train to drinker and practice every day. If you have more than a couple of drinks -- a couple of hours you're going to be drawn. If you're -- allegedly trained drinker do you get a medal or new liver. -- are sometimes you'd get. A lot of new things because you're usually involved in a horrific car accidents. Often without wearing your seat belt. On so do you go in with that with that knowledge and you say well on and count here impound. Three the first hour -- One the next now or arms spacing them out even more than that is I guess the trick. Is and I get to the point where -- judgment is an anyway impaired name used -- forget numbers insert it yourself and I think and I am look at an adequate. Exactly and that is what happens -- alcohol you get a little bit intoxicated and then -- judgment we view your sense of responsibility leap view and then all of a sudden. The amount of the -- alcohol in your blood is a lot more venue and -- body anticipated. And bad things happen. Doctor I appreciate -- time I really do -- stuff. Thank you hypocrite.
