  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.
