What Exactly Is Alcohol?
Most people simply do not know
and our children really have noidea.
My friends, this is information that we need to protect our very precious children from a horrible existence and early death. The life of an alcoholic is all too typically a very lonely, deeply depressing, utterly miserable, poverty stricken struggle for mere existence and with little or no hope for the future and NO Joy in Life.
My prayer for you is to share this information with your children.
About 2 billion (with a BIG B) people across the World consume alcoholic drinks. Hey, there are only 7 billion of us on this Earth. Alcohol is the most widely used drug in the United States. Unlike most other drugs, alcohol carries the potential to damage many organs of the body; including the Heart, brain, liver, and digestive system. It also BREAKS the Heart when you lower your Loved One into an early grave.
AND when you think about it,
alcohol damages other organs outside of your body,
in the bodies of others who Love you,
in an organ called their Heart.
The use of alcohol results in the death
of OVER two and one half million people each year
and causes serious illness and injury to many millions more.
Most deaths caused by alcohol results from
injuries, CANCER, cardiovascular diseases and liver cirrhosis.
Alcohol is also associated with infectious diseases like AIDS, tuberculosis and sexually transmitted disease. This is because alcohol consumption weakens the immune system, reduces inhibitions, and distorts judgment.
Of 19 major health concerns, alcohol is ranked #3, and is greater than unsafe water, high blood pressure, tobacco, obesity and illicit drugs (ranked #18). Source: Global Health Risks.
“Too much drinking increases your chances of being injured or even killed. Alcohol is a factor, for example, in about 60 percent of fatal burn injuries, drownings and homicides; 50 percent of severe trauma injuries and sexual assaults; and 40 percent of fatal motor vehicle crashes, suicides and fatal falls.”
– Rosalind Breslow, epidemiologist at the U.S. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism

with accompanying mental retardation.
These poor children
didn’t even get to take a drink.
But MOM did,
without thinking about them.
And NOW . . . . . . .
they can live their lives
ANY real potential
of truly being alive.
Uh, I may think that is Mom,
I am not REALLY capable
of thinking like I should.
She took the bat
out of my hands,
and told me
to play ball,

the TRUTH hurts.

that sets us
alcohol is involved in half
of all fatal automobile accidents.
We cannot even imagine the loss of potential.
Research has shown that prolonged periods of drinking produces specific brain damage which causes blackouts, disorientation, and loss of memory.
Studies suggest a connection between alcohol
and stressors contributing to Heart disease.

The World Health Organization released
The Global Strategy to Reduce the Harmful Use of Alcohol,
endorsed by Member States.

It promotes proven effective measures
for reducing alcohol-related harm including:
• taxation on alcohol;
• reducing availability through allowing fewer outlets to sell alcohol,
• raising age limits for those buying
(I personally recommend the age limit of 101. By that time, you probably will not be able to hold the bottle and your body will be prone to react normally and you will throw up and throw the bottle at the idiot that gave it to you. With any luck you will hit that person and knock some sense into him or her.)
• regulating or banning marketing of alcoholic beverages and
• conducting information and educational campaigns.
A large new report warns that the harms of alcohol greatly outweigh any potential beneficial effects. The authors of the study, which looks at data on 28 million people worldwide, determined that considering the risks, there is “no safe level of alcohol.”
Alcohol is associated with 2.8 million deathsworldwide each year, the researchers found in the study, which is published in the journal The Lancet. Over 2 percent of women and nearly 7 percent of men worldwide die from alcohol-related health problems each year.
Regular alcohol consumption can have negative impacts on the body’s organs and tissues, while binge drinking can lead to injuries or alcohol poisoning. Alcohol dependence can lead to self-harm or violence.
Let’s Get Personal, because It Is!
Over the years, Mrs. Anderson and I have lost many precious friends and neighbors to the excrement Alcohol. Our deeply Loved friend and former parent and teacher, Jason Jackson, fought on an UN-level field of battle against this powerful drug and its accomplices – ignorance, apathy and prejudice. Because of our misguided tolerance, the ready availability of alcohol contributes directly to millions of people falling victim to its overwhelming seduction and power.
Jason knew this deadly excreted chemical was more powerful than he was. We discussed this on many occasions. And as he reached out for help, I found his Spirit to be courageous. In my opinion, as a society and as members of the Family of Man, we failed our brother Jason and millions more, in not helping to provide a landscape at least partially free from such palpable and blatant temptation. There are advertisements for this CRAP (yes, it is) everywhere.
Countless times he reminded me of numerous places all along our streets and highways to purchase alcohol and advertise this liquid refuse. He told me privately that every time he passed a place where it was advertised and easily available, the indescribable and horrible compulsion of need overwhelmed him. He asked me why? Why is this product available on every street corner and in-between? Many times he asked me how he could stay away from something he was reminded of every few minutes as he traveled along on our streets and highways and even in grocery stores and gas stations.
That, my friends, is a very good question. The ready availability of this toxic, debilitating and deadly excrement is responsible for the death of this fine young man – and millions more. As citizens, we hold the powerto limit the sale, advertisement and distribution within our communities. Why are we not actively seeking to help our children, our neighbors and ourselves, in fighting to limit the sale and reduce temptation and exposure to this harmful excrement?
The Truth is sad. “We, the people” allow lobbyists from the liquor industry to influence those we place in a position of Sacred Trust, those we elect to public office. We, through our blindfaith in those we elect, permit the influence of money to overwhelm our capacity for compassion and our common sense. And why do we keep electing these people? Do you think any of our elected representatives will attend the funeral of any one of the victims of alcohol abuse? We, the People, are effectively causing the MURDER of millions of beautiful people.

By not acting and voting in a responsible manner, we contribute to the illusion that there is no problem, while we bury our Beloved Children out of sight and in early graves, as we continue to drive by the cause of their suffering and demise.How blind are we? How insensitive have we become? How much sorrow can we endure? My, how the tears have flowed. The tears could fill an OCEAN so large and so deep that this uncaring Nation could be swallowed by it.
And it has been.
Henry David Thoreau said that most men live lives of quiet desperation. Jason lived such a life. He told me he did not own a television because he simply drank all evening until he passed out. And there are countless millionsthat live as such. Perhaps you passed by one of these precious, unloved, forgotten and uncared for people today, living under a bridge or begging on the corner of the street.
They are all over the place.
do we reallycare?
With little or no hope for the future.
I ask you today to please remember Jason,
and the many, many others who have struggled against
to free themselves from dangerous drugs such as the bacterial excrement, alcohol.
I beg of you
to please Resolve with me
that Jason and all the other countless victims
shall not have died in vain.
That through you,
our other sons and daughters
shall have a new
birth of freedom
– the freedom to live the Life that Jason
could only dream of, on so many nights,
as he wept and Prayed for help.
When you drink alcohol, it is not casual.
It is not harmless.
It is serious,
especially if you consume this drug
in the presence of children,
and by doing so, give its consumption your stamp of approval.
The reality of drinking gains a new dimension of acceptability,
without the true and hidden recognition of its seductive and highly destructive power.
The casual apathy associated with its acceptance
as a simple beverage,
forms a strong and usually unbreakable bond
of relational tolerance
that simply should not exist.
Any drug powerful enough to change the Constitution of the United States – TWICE – and destructive enough to cause tens of thousands of deaths on America’s highways and destroy millions of families and lives in associated heath disorders, is
too powerful to play with.
There is no such thing
as a safe level of alcohol consumption.
The idea that drinking small amounts of alcohol
will do you no harm is a

If you need a distraction, a beautiful release from the pain that you feel in Life, find someone like Jason and spend time with them. Offer some comfort from the overwhelming burdens they carry on their long, painful and lonely road of life. As the beautiful Folk Music of my time echoes back – “It’s a long, long journey, so stay by my side”.The only things that you truly possess are those things you give to others, for they live on in the Heart. And the most valuable thing you can give to anyone, especially those in such need, is your time. Let someone know you Love them and find some peace tonight. And please remember:
“SPENDING TIME WITH CHILDREN
IS MORE IMPORTANT
THAN SPENDING MONEY ON CHILDREN.”
–Anthony D. Williams, from: Inside the Divine Pattern
I know that few, if any, will long remember what I try to convey.
It is such a tragic realization. But please allow me to wish you strength. And I pray we will all have courage.
But more than this, know that
I wish you Love.
May the courage of your convictions, in some way, honor the precious memory of our beloved friend Jason. As I shared with him, when last we met, my Prayer is for you to search for the strength to always share the bountiful Love that lives in your Heart, for in the end, that is truly
we will have left.
And privately, I have truly wondered if the volume of tears shed by all the countless millions affected by the losses we have suffered is not greater than the volume of alcohol consumed by its victims.
How many Oceans
So, What Is Alcohol?
It was bad enough when Scientific American broke the news that there are ten bacteria cells in or on the human body for each human cell. That we are out-numbered 10 to 1 in our own bodies. That there are hundreds of times more bacteria genes as Human genes living in and on us. We are made mostly of bacteria.
When you get right down to it, the pseudo happy juice that makes you pass out and makes you fat and irritable, and dying or dead,
is yeast poop.
Yeast eat sugar and drops big, steaming loads of booze wherever they go. And they pass gas a lot too. You may as well stick a straw in the septic tank. The effect will be the same! Click here for more.
It is true that alcohol is the name given to the excrement that bacteria excrete, after feeding on fruit/vegetation during so called fermentation (a fancy word for excrementation) ?
Alcohol is a toxin, and is toxic to the human body in
even moderate amounts. While we may have a few drinks and not feel anything, our body certainly takes notice of the alcohol.
The story of how alcohol came to be, … asserts gleefully that fungi in grape juice “gorge” themselves and leave their liquid excrement. That is what alcohol is.
Yeast: It Eats Sugars And Poops Alcohol. What’s Not To Like?
Yes, we have discovered that alcohol is essentially the toilet water of a fungus. Alcohol is yeast excrement. …………………………YUK!
Beer, as all alcoholic drinks, is made by fermentation caused by bacteria feeding on the yeast cells, then defecating. This bacterial excrement is called alcohol.
The term ‘toddlers’ originated in England. There were impurities in the drinking water that disallowed the water to be used for drinking. A common alternative drink was beer (it was cheep, plentiful and the water used to make it was treated during the initial boiling during brewing). Toddlers, just weaning off of mothers milk were unaccustomed to the effects of beer. This coupled with the fact that they were just learning how to walk really made them toddle.
It was the accepted practice in Babylonia 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride’s father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer, and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the “honey month” or what we know today as the “honeymoon”.
Many years ago in England, pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the rim or handle of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill, they used the whistle to get some service. “Wet your whistle”, is the phrase inspired by this practice.
Alcohol is made from the excrement of a living yeast organism. When the yeast is fed carbs in the form of grapes, hops, potatoes, corn etc., it digests it and excretes toxic alcohol.

If you are anxious,
you are living in the future.
