In just 7 days, nearly 300 people were recruited!Are those who blush better at drinking than those who pale?Drinking milk. Does it really help?


Every festival, there will be family, three or five friends together, this is a very happy thing.The party, will not be a – drink.Some people hate drinking, of course, many people also like drinking, even a drink can not stop.According to the wechat official account of shenzhen First Aid, “120” in Shenzhen responded to police and treated 274 people for alcohol poisoning during the seven-day Spring Festival holiday.So why do some people like to drink alcohol and become addicted to it?Do people who blush when they drink drink more?Can these practices such as drinking tea, milk really have the effect of alcohol solution?Today we are going to find out.Why is drinking addictive?Usually, the alcohol content of the commercial alcohol products is above 0.5%vol (commonly known as degree), known as beverage wine.There are many kinds of drinks, such as fermented wine (beer, wine, yellow wine, etc.), distilled wine (white wine, brandy, etc.), mixed wine and liqueurs.Some people become addicted to alcohol, but it’s mostly alcohol that does the work.Alcohol (scientific name ethanol) is a non-specific central nervous system inhibitor, which can play a short-term excitement, relieve tension and other effects.However, in the long run, excessive alcohol consumption can lead to the development of pathological behavior syndrome (alcohol dependence syndrome), which is characterized by uncontrollable alcohol use, persistent or intermittent craving for alcohol, and negative emotional and physical symptoms when alcohol is unavailable.It is now believed that alcohol addiction is closely related to the dysfunction of our brain’s reward pathways.Studies have shown that drinking alcohol can improve hypothalamic neuropeptide secretion, such as opioid peptide) level, and through to the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), glutamate and serotonin (5 – HT), such as neurotransmitters to an adverse effect, stimulate the brain to release dopamine for pleasure, prompting the drinkers over and over again to drink, to generate positive reinforcement.As the body in the repeated stimulation of alcohol, the brain reward effect will be weakened (that is, sensitivity is reduced), resulting in the body to produce “away from” alcohol after the uncomfortable, negative strengthening effect.In the long run, this reward effect will reach a new adaptive state under the effect of alcohol. Once alcohol is not drunk, there will be anxiety, irritability, insomnia and other adverse reactions after the interruption of alcohol, while under the negative reinforcement effect, drinkers will continue to want to drink, and eventually form dependence on alcohol.Most of the alcohol is worse to drink but why do people still like it?As a general rule, higher-proof wines tend to be harder to swallow.Because the higher the alcohol content, the greater the damage and stimulation of the digestive tract mucosa, such as spicy sensation, burning sensation, etc.However, people generally drink alcohol on occasions of reunion, social interaction and celebration. In such short-term and acute drinking scenes, the pleasure brought by dopamine in the brain is easy to enhance people’s mood and enhance the atmosphere.As a result, even the most unpleasant wine may be drunk away.However, due to the difference in alcohol content and other components, the flavor and palatability of various wines vary greatly.For example, beer and wine with low alcohol content have bright and shiny wine body color, and some unique volatile flavor components, as well as the slight bitter feeling brought by hops and the astringent feeling brought by tannins, etc., which combine to form sensory stimulation and make people like to drink a little.For liquor with high alcohol content, acid, alcohol, ester and other flavor components are relatively high, and the wine flavor is very rich, and it is easy to make people want to drink.Therefore, people are often used to drinking a little wine to express cheerful mood.Is it true that people who blush are more likely to drink than those who pale?Are those who blush better at drinking than those who pale?The so-called ability to drink is to point to the amount of alcohol, and the size of the amount of alcohol has nothing to do with the change of skin color after drinking, mainly with the speed of their metabolism in the body, which is mainly determined by genetic factors.For example, men generally drink more alcohol than women, and alcohol is eliminated from the blood at a rate of about 6-10g/ hour by metabolism, which also varies from person to person.After entering the human body, most of the alcohol will be oxidized and metabolized in the liver. It is oxidized to acetaldehyde through three ways, for example, it is oxidized to acetaldehyde under the action of ethanol dehydrogenase (ADH), and then oxidized to acetic acid under the action of aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH), and then it is metabolized to carbon dioxide and water and discharged out of the body.Drinking blush (or face) is mainly the lack of acetaldehyde dehydrogenase in the body or low activity, in the short term the accumulation of too much acetaldehyde, the performance of the face or other parts of the body capillary dilation and red.Those who turn pale and sweat may have serious adverse effects, such as a drop in blood pressure, from drinking too much alcohol.Therefore, the face becomes red or become pale after drinking indicates that the body metabolism may appear problems, should avoid drinking.Drink tea, drink milk to wait for method of cure wine, really useful?Drinking too much wine is easy to produce dizziness, dry mouth and other symptoms, then people tend to seek some cure.After alcohol enters the human circulation, it mainly depends on the metabolic capacity of the liver to “cure alcohol”, such as the activity of ADH and ALDH in the body.The rate of gastric emptying is a major determinant of alcohol absorption, since most alcohol is absorbed after it enters the intestine, such as in the duodenum and jejunum.So taking steps before the alcohol is absorbed can provide some relief.Before drinking, eat more greasy food, can delay the rate of alcohol in the stomach, but also in the stomach to form a certain “protective film” to slow down the absorption of alcohol in the stomach.Drinking plenty of water or liquid with high water content, such as milk, can also dilute alcohol concentration in the stomach.In addition, drinking is mainly through drinking water and other liquids to relieve some symptoms of dry mouth, but because the water intake of tea or coffee is not much, and tea polyphenols, caffeine and other ingredients can also play a certain dehydration effect like alcohol, and not as good as drinking water.In conclusion, people with red or pale faces after drinking alcohol are not suitable for drinking, as excessive drinking can increase damage to digestive organs such as the liver.Holiday parties, if it is necessary to drink occasions, adult men or women should not drink more than 25g or 15g of alcohol per day, and children and the elderly and other special groups should not drink.Disclaimer: This article is reproduced for the purpose of passing on more information.If the source is wrong or violated your legitimate rights and interests, please contact the author with proof of ownership, we will promptly correct, delete, thank you.Email address: newmedia@xxcb.cn
