Description: Alcohol reaches the stomach through the mouth and the esophagus. Within the stomach a small part is metabolized -- the big remainder goes into the blood. If drunk with empty stomach this process is quite fast. Via the blood the alcohol is distributed throughout the whole body and finally reaches the brain. There it influences the metabolism of the transmitter substances and has a negative impact on different brain functions like seeing, alertness, concentration and reactivity. Alcohol damages any body cell. Constant and excessive alcohol consumption leads not only to digestive disorders but above all the liver is affected and irrecoverably damaged. Moreover it can lead to problems with circulation and hypertension. Additionally alcohol as a cell toxic irreversibly destroys millions of brain cells.
