The Facts About Alcohol

What is alcohol?
Many people like to drink beer, wine, liquor, rice and herbal wine. All these are alcoholic beverages. Alcohol is consumed at social gatherings. It is thought to make a person happy, feel free, or forget his/her problems. It can also make a person feel angry and sad. Each person will have a different reaction to alcohol.
In our bodies, however, alcohol is considered a toxin. The liver has to break down the alcohol in our bodies after a drink. Over time, our liver can be damaged if it has to work hard to get rid of alcohol from our system. Those who abuse alcohol for many years may develop liver disease or liver cancer.
