ALCOHOL IN HEALTH AND DISEASE.

ALCOHOL IN HEALTH AND DISEASE. It is with some hesitancy that I present this subject for your consideration, knowing, as I do, the extreme differences of opinion in regard to the effects of alcohol upon the human system, especially in disease. It is over sixty years since the composition of alcohol and its effects upon the human body have claimed the special attention of chemists, physiologists and philanthropists. Since this time very many investigations and observations have been made, and numerous important and scientific works written by investigators whose names stand high in the annals of chemistry and physiology. Among the seventy-six known elements, there is one called carbon (chemical symbol C). This element is termed an organic substance, as it occurs abundantly in living matter; it is a waste product of animal and a reconstructive product of vegetable life—that is a food for plants and an effete matter of animals.

Abstract

It is with some hesitancy that I present this subject for your consideration, knowing, as I do, the extreme differences of opinion in regard to the effects of alcohol upon the human system, especially in disease. It is over sixty years since the composition of alcohol and its effects upon the human body have claimed the special attention of chemists, physiologists and philanthropists. Since this time very many investigations and observations have been made, and numerous important and scientific works written by investigators whose names stand high in the annals of chemistry and physiology. Among the seventy-six known elements, there is one called carbon (chemical symbol C). This element is termed an organic substance, as it occurs abundantly in living matter; it is a waste product of animal and a reconstructive product of vegetable life—that is a food for plants and an effete matter of animals.
