"Alcohol" vs. "Ethanol"

Okay . . . so yesterday we spoke about the destruction that the toxin "Ethanol" can cause to the human body.

So today, I'm getting on soapbox . . . and talking about yet another way "Ethanol" can get into the body and destroy our health and life.

And that would be drinking "Alcohol"!

I know, I know . . . just like "sugar" . . . we have a hard time living without our afternoon or evening drink also.

BUT hear me out . . . just like the "sugar" that "feeds" the "bad" bacteria in our body . . .

The "Alcoholic" beverages that we consume . . . even though they de-stress us and make us feel good . . . are also toxic to our body. And this is why . . .

"Alcohol" are organic molecules assembled from carbon, oxygen and hydrogen atoms. And when 2 carbons are present, the "alcohol" is now called . . .

You guess it . . . "ETHANOL" also known as ethyl alcohol. "Ethanol" is the form of "alcohol" contained in beverages such as beer, wine and liquor.

So simply said . . . the "ALCOHOL" in alcoholic beverages is actually "ETHANOL"!

Now please, listen up people . . . most of the "ethanol in the body is broken down in the liver by an enzyme called "alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH), which transforms "ethanol" into a "TOXIC" compound called "Acetaldehyde", a known "CARCINOGEN"!

We spoke yesterday, of how the "sugar" we consume feeds the "bad" bacteria in the body. And when our immune system tries to eliminate the sugar and kill the "bad" bacteria that's out of control . . . this dying bacteria releases 79 toxins . . . with 2 of them being "ETHANOL" and "ACETALDEHYDE".

So let's think about this for a moment . . .

If you eat a lot of "sugary" foods and/or refined carbohydrates . . .

Your body is already dealing with the battle and toxicity of sugar, bad bacteria, uric acid, acetaldehyde, and ethanol. You are already in trouble.

But . . . now add to this destruction of the body and cells . . . "alcoholic beverages" . . .

What do you think is going to happen??????????

The body is not designed to eliminate the massive amount of toxins that we as human beings put into it.

And this is why we all have health issues.

Now . . . add to this devastation to the body, the fact that alcohol also encourages an overgrowth of "bad" bacteria, while reducing the population of our "good" bacteria. This in turn, leads to inflammation allowing toxins to enter the bloodstream. And this disruption in the balance of our gut bacteria (the ratio of "good" to "bad") can cause health problems such as leaky gut, gastrointestinal symptoms, diabetes, skin problems, weight issues, cancer . . . the list goes on and on and on.

And all because we consume too much sugar and alcohol.

People . . . I'm not telling you this because I don't want us as human beings to "enjoy" life.

But rather . . . because I want us as human beings to "live" life without the suffering of illness, weight issues and disease.

We need to live the best, healthiest life we can.

You can't go back and change the beginning of your suffering . . .

But you can start where you are and change the ending!

Too many of us are overweight, have aches and pain, arthritis, skin problems, heart disease, diabetes and cancer. And we're dying way too young!!!!

All due to the accumulation of "ETHANOL" in our bodies due to an overconsumption of "sugar" and "alcohol".

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting and complying to the old, but rather building of the new.

I'm giving you valuable information . . . so please . . . absorb it and use it.

Tomorrow we talk about how to fix this problem.

As always, feel free to contact me here
