Q. What is impaired at .08 blood-alcohol content? Hello there, What is impaired at .08 blood-alcohol content?

A. The limit for workers to enter the protected area of a commercial nuclear power plant is 0.04. (I retired from one in July.)

So to answer your question directly, it impairs your ability to think, work, and make critical decisions.

It affects those around you, especially family if the person persists and drinks irresponsibly all the time.

Drinking affects one's ability to drive an automobile properly, not just for the driver, but for the safety of passengers and those in other autos. If you care for other people, you won't drink and drive.
Don't drink and drive. The law is far too lenient.

You can't get back what you lose when you drink irresponsibly.
What you lose may be things intangible that are the most precious in life.

Q. Does the cooking have a negative effect on the protein content of the food? I have heard that high temperatures cooking breaks the protein, so does the cooking have a negative effect on the protein content of the food?

A. Yes. Proteins can be denatured by heat, but only when the protein structure is delicate or is exposed to extremely high temperatures for long time. You must remember that breaking of protein is the physical-chemical process where the physical or chemical structure of a protein is rearranged. So cooking will not reduce on the nutritive value of the food until it’s cooked at cooking temperatures.

Jones accepts--or does not take it as his task to engage with--the claim that in the early sixteenth-century English society "was contentedly, habitually Catholic," as Eamon Duffy and others have argued, but he also recognizes, along with Patrick Collinson, that "a Protestant culture" was "in operation in the Elizabethan age." The main question Jones asks, therefore, is "how a nation of habitual Catholics turned into Protestants" (2).
