  1. ". . . where there is a severe menstrual taboo, there is not likely to be severe insobriety in the society" (39)Klausner, Samuel Z. - Sacred and profane meanings of blood and alcohol, 1964 - 2 Variables

    This study examines a hypothesis that ceremonial drinking is negatively associated with heavy secular drinking. Empirical analysis does not support this association, and the author proposes an alternative theory of alcohol consumption and the problem of evil. Hypotheses relating alcohol consumption to menstrual taboos and the uses of blood in society are supported.

  2. ". . . that where blood is considered holy, as indicated by the existence of a severe menstrual taboo, blood will tend not to be used secularly; nor will alcohol, its symbolic equivalent, tend to be drunk heavily in purely secular situations" (39)Klausner, Samuel Z. - Sacred and profane meanings of blood and alcohol, 1964 - 2 Variables

"Societies without evidence of a sex difference [in drinking] tended to be higher in hostility change, in sociability intensity, availability of alcoholic beverages, procurement effort and extent of problem" (57)Child, Irvin L. - A cross-cultural study of drinking: iii. sex differences, 1965 - 6 Variables

    This study examines sex differences in alcohol consumption, suggesting that they are related to a nomadic or rural settlement, low accumulation of food resources, and strong child training pressure toward achievement. The authors suggest that societal norms often limit drunkenness in women because women's responsibilities (such as childcare) would deter incapacity due to intoxication.
