Who has sorrow?
Who has woe?
Who has strife?
Who has complaints?
Who feels hurt without cause?
Who has bloodshot eyes?
They who tarry long over wine, they who go to sample mixed wine.
Look not upon wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup or glass, when it goes down smoothly. In the end it bites like a serpent, and stings like an adder.
Your eyes will see strange things, and your mind will utter upside-down things; yes, you will be as one who lies down in the heart of the sea, or as one who lies down upon the top of a ship's mast.
"They struck me; I did not feel it!
They beat me; I did not know it!
When shall I awake?
I will seek it yet again."
That was my life in my early 20s as a drunkard and ruined by alcohol, beer, whisky, strong liquors. Those were my wasted years , wasted time in life. I joined the Seletar Hash House club and I became a victim of alcohol.
Alcohol versus Vasopressin.
Alcohol has been shown to prevent vasopressin formation and its function. Vasopressin, a hormone, controls the act of producing the very small "showerhead" perforations in the cell wall to let only water (H2 O) molecules into the cell itself. This is part of the mechanism of reverse osmosis that the human body employs to deliver filtered water molecules into vital cells, like brain cells and growing fetus.
Vasopressin is the agent engaged in the drought-management program of the human body. No vasopressin, means no "showerhead", in turn cause cells not properly serviced with fresh water, thus, result dehydration at cellular level. This is the effect of alcohol dehydrating the cells in the brain, thus cause all drunkards to have hangover like bricks on their head after the drinking session, every time. We need water , not another round of those beer or wine. Now we see the truth.
Mother-to-be take care your water intake. When alcohol consumption(also other dehydrating agents such as caffeine, coffee, colas, soft drinks, tea) by the mother prevents the secretion and the needed actions of vasopressin, the same effect is produced in the child-fetus, way before it's birth. The mother's brain structure is already formed, but the fetus' is not. It is still in progress. Even after it is born into this world. Go see newborn baby's top head "popping" up and down.
The lack of vasopressin can result in the child's brain not developing normally, and in some cases, not complete in development. remedy: increase high-content, nutrient density foods like fresh fruits and green & colourful vegetables/fresh herbs is best for mother-to-be and child.
Vasopressin deficiency continue...the child's lungs may also develop with abnormalities that could lead to cystic deformation. Google the word "cystic" and learn more if you wish.
because of the vital role of water in regulating all functions of the human body, it is not accurate to blame most developmental abnormalities entirely on DNA malformation, as has been the case up to now. It is the first dehydration not corrected that cause the DNA to change itself. Dehydration could be a contribution factor. This need a paradigm change from solid paradigm to solute paradigm to understand better body physiology and symptoms manifestations.
So, son and daughter, learn the truth of any subject, and let us do the right things to our bodies for oursleves from here. Please don't pass the buck, for I know it's easier to blame our parents'genetic code.
