"Alcohol" - good or bad? Part 3


Okay . . . so let's continue our discussion about drinking "ALCOHOL" and what it's doing to our health.


And to do that . . . we need to break it down even more . . .


As we spoke yesterday . . . "alcohol" which is really "ethanol" . . . once in the body . . . breaks down to a chemical called "acetaldehyde".


And "acetaldehyde" . . . is "highly toxic" to the human body . . . and causes damage at the cellular and genomic levels.


Now . . . when "alcohol" is presented to the body and the liver tries to break it down . . . it forms this chemical called "acetaldehyde" . . . which damages our DNA . . . and prevents the body from "REPAIRING that DAMAGE".


And when DNA is damaged . . . a cell can become "malignant" . . . begin to grow "out of control" . . . and create a cancerous tumor.


Therefore . . . a buildup of "acetaldehyde" can increase the risk of "all" cancers.


Okay . . . so how does this happen you ask???


Well . . . when consuming an "alcoholic" beverage . . . some of this toxic "acetaldehyde" enters the bloodstream . . . which damages our membranes and causes scar tissue to form.


At that time . . . this process of "scarred tissue" leads to a "HANGOVER" . . . which can also result in a faster heartbeat, headaches, facial flushing, nausea and/or an upset stomach.


But guess what???


The "BRAIN" . . . is the part of the body . . . that's most affected at the beginning of this process by this toxin resulting in a "hangover".


And with this . . . "acetaldehyde" becomes a "POISON" to the brain . . . which causes problems with brain activity and impaired memory.


This PEOPLE . . . is called an "acetaldehyde buildup"!!!


So, if you experience a "HANGOVER" . . . "PASS OUT" . . . get "FLUSH" in the face . . . "FEEL SICK" . . . or can't REMEMBER THINGS" . . .


Then you have a "TOXIC OVERLOAD" going on in your body and brain . . . that's secretively causing havoc to your health . . . and you don't even know it.


I know, I know . . . you're now saying . . . I only have 1 beer or a glass of wine with dinner or before bed to relax me.


How can that be bad???


Well . . . I guess that's for you to decide . . .


But . . . "acetaldehyde" directly induces an "inflammatory" response . . . and we all know from previous Health Tip what "inflammation" does to the body.


Okay . . . so let's figure out which "alcoholic" beverages are the "WORST" for us.


Maybe that will help . . .


Clear, non-flavored spirits like gin and vodka (straight up, nothing with it) . . . tend to have LESS "acetaldehyde" than dark, fruity drinks . . . such as brandy and sherry.


Regular beer is "higher" than "clear spirits . . . and "wine" is "HIGHER" then "ALL" of them.


So when you say, "I just had 1 little glass of wine" . . . you may want to rethink your choices.


Tomorrow we'll continue . . . because the "devastation" to our health . . . IS NOT DONE YET!!!
