When we think of it from the religious point of view we
find that liquor encourages the harmful propensities of the mind. The
alcoholic drinks exercise a serious effect upon our conduct. Moreover,they
are harmful even to the body:and this point is evident. The alcohol that
gets into the stomach slowly passes into the liver, the small intestines
and into the blood through the blood veins. Then gradually, it spreads
throughout the body. Alcohol may get into the large intestine. When one
takes alcohol on empty stomach, It gets drawn into the intestines forcibly
and at a great speed. Within 10 to 30 minutes, alcohol gets into the
blood, and reaches every part of the body The loss of health people suffer
is in proportion to the speed with which the alcohol runs through the body
alcohol may cause ulcers in the stomach and harm to the heart and the
kidney. The poison of alcohol makes blood thick and makes it clot or
On account of excessive drinking of alcohol, the blood
vessels of the heart grow weak and powerless an the eyes begin to burn.
Drinking also causes vomiting; fatigue, perspiration and a shivering
through out the body besides spoiling and reducing the appetite.
Alcohol increases anger, worry, fear, misery and gloom
besides causing excitement. It increases tension in the mind; and the
increased tension makes the blood hot. The digestive power grows weak
because of the effect of alcohol. A substance called Acetyl Colon appears
where the muscles and pulse centres are collected together; and that
substance mixing with other substances produces carbon and other such
things. In this condition, lactic acid begins to increase; and it destroys
the smoothness of the body. The skin becomes rough and there appear
obstacles in the blood circulation system and in the muscle-tissues.
Dr. Voltaire C. Recklese, a Professor in the University
of Ohio has written in his book, "Crime Problem" that drinking alcoholic
liquors, intoxicating medicines and abnormal sexual propensities have a
great share in causing criminal tendencies in men.
