How does raw alcohol become poisonous?
Jaggery, water, urea are used to make raw liquor in villages and towns. Many dangerous chemicals are also used in this. Keeping the liquor prepared by this method for a long time also kills insects. Such alcohol becomes poisonous. Raw brewers use oxytocin to rot the jaggery. Apart from this, Nausadar and Urea are also mixed. All these things are very dangerous for the body. When fermentation is done by mixing urea, oxytocin, jaggery and water, methyl alcohol is formed instead of ethyl alcohol. This methyl alcohol itself causes the alcohol to become poisonous. Methyl alcohol is also formed along with ethyl alcohol even if the temperature is not taken care of while making alcohol.
Poisonous alcohol has a direct effect on the brain, eyes and heart.
Poisonous alcohol causes painful death
Dr. Naresh Kumar says that methyl alcohol makes formaldehyde (formic acid) in the body. This is such a poison, which becomes the cause of loss of eyesight or death. It affects the mind of the drinker. The amount of methyl alcohol in poisonous alcohol is more than 90 percent. So much methyl alcohol causes nervous system break down. Toxic alcohol drinkers become victims of cardiomyopathy and optic neuropathy. In cardiomyopathy, the size of the heart suddenly increases. This makes it difficult for the heart to pump blood and the drinker gets a heart attack. Due to this the drinker suffers a lot and dies a painful death.
