What foods have the least impact on slowing the body's absorption rate of alcohol.

The right answer is foods that are high in fiber.

Alcohol passes into the esophagus and ends up in the stomach. 20% of this alcohol crosses the wall of the stomach to end up in the blood. Then the alcohol left in the stomach passes into the small intestine, which assimilates it quickly. The liver partly breaks down the alcohol that has passed into the bloodstream.

Alcohol reaches the brain, after about 10 minutes, through the blood. It is then that this part of the body and the nervous system undergo the effects (narcotics). The assimilation of alcohol lasts longer if The person is not fasting at that time (it will be necessary to avoid carbohydrate-based foods and to favor fatty and protein-rich foods to attenuate the absorption).

Similarities between seemingly unrelated organisms can be explained by Darwin’s theory that organisms come from common ancestors. Is it true or false?

Darwin's theory with relation to similarities amongst unrelated organisms looks at either similar form or similar function of appendages and from this it is postulated that some organisms have common ancestors based on these similarities. A broad example would be the fact that most vertebrates (organisms with spines) stemmed from one or a group of common ancestors, while invertebrates (lack of a spine) are related to common ancestor or groups of common ancestors. So the answer to the question is yes, it is true.
