"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".
