Gastric bypass surgery, the most common form of weight loss surgery, could increase a patients chance of alcohol abuse.

A new study found that there might be a link between the two.

The surgery shrinks the stomach's size and that limits a person's food intake.

Researchers believe the surgery can change how the body digests and metabolizes alcohol.

Some people with the bypass said they feel drunker quicker off less.

With more than 200,000 stomach surgeries performed each year, doctors should really look into why this is happening.

Watch that alcohol people!
