Laredo, Texas, February 12, 2018 – Millions of people are dying every year because of alcohol consumption.
It all started in 2012, when Sylvie Grattagliano founded Alcohol Substitute. She decided to create a research center about the negative effect of the alcohol.
This was the kick starter and soon after, Alcohol Substitute decided to start the campaign to raise awareness on a wider scale.
There are lots of reasons people decide to take part in Alcohol Substitute and it offers a real range of benefits by helping other to get away from liquor.
Now with some friends and family a campaign to raise funds to purchase new laboratory equipment is on the way with Go Fund Me
Every 28 minutes in the USA there is someone dying as a result of alcohol. It is the country’s biggest risk factor for death, ill-health and disability for people aged 15-49, according to https://www.rethinkingdrinking.niaaa.nih.gov/Thinking-about-a-change/strategies-for-cutting-down/Tips-To-Try.aspx
Alcohol is a drug
It is classed as a depressant, meaning that it slows down vital functions—resulting in slurred speech, unsteady movement, disturbed perceptions and an inability to react quickly.
As for how it affects the mind, it is best understood as a drug that reduces a person’s ability to think rationally and distorts his or her judgment.
Although classified as a depressant, the amount of alcohol consumed determines the type of effect. Most people drink for the stimulant effect, such as a beer or glass of wine taken to “loosen up.” But if a person consumes more than the body can handle, they then experience alcohol’s depressant effect. They start to feel “stupid” or lose coordination and control.
Alcohol overdose causes even more severe depressant effects (inability to feel pain, toxicity where the body vomits the poison, and finally unconsciousness or, worse, coma or death from severe toxic overdose). These reactions depend on how much is consumed and how quickly.
There are different kinds of alcohol. Ethyl alcohol (ethanol), the only alcohol used in beverages, is produced by the fermentation of grains and fruits. Fermenting is a chemical process whereby yeast acts upon certain ingredients in the food, creating alcohol.
Fermented drinks, such as beer and wine, contain from 2% alcohol to 20% alcohol. Distilled drinks, or liquor, contain from 40% to 50% or more alcohol. The usual alcohol content for each is:
Beer 2–6% alcohol Cider 4–8% alcohol
Wine 8–20% alcohol
Tequila 40% alcohol
Rum 40% or more alcohol
Brandy 40% or more alcohol
Gin 40–47% alcohol
Whiskey 40–50% alcohol
Vodka 40–50% alcohol
Liqueurs 15–60% alcohol
