In the ever-wacky Christmas issue of the journal BMJ, three British scientists have studied James Bond’s drinking habits and come to the conclusion that Bond was indeed a raging alcoholic. The study authors went right to the source, perusing 14 of the Sir Ian Fleming novels, and tracking Bond’s alcohol consumption over time. They suggest that the reason he liked his martinis “shaken, not stirred” may have been because of the alcoholic tremor he would have had from drinking a whopping 92 units of alcohol per week – four times the recommended limit in Britain. They say with this level of blood alcohol it would be awfully hard to be a successful spy, let alone a successful womanizer.
