Did you know that
alcohol is not only bad for your body but it has lots
of calories that make you fat? Not one part of your
body needs alcohol. Some people get a headache or they
vomit if they drink alcohol.
What is Alcohol?
Alcohol can't be in a pill or a
powder, it is a liquid that is a chemical. Alcohol is
made by fruit juice and honey. It is made by
fermentation. Fermenting changes sugars and starches
into alcohol. Alcohol smell comes out of your mouth on
your breath and also shows up in your urine.
How can you tell if someone is
When you drink alcohol it can make
you drunk. Alcohol travels into your brain, and then
your brain can't control your actions as quickly as it
should. You do all these weird things since you're
drunk. Your behavior is different then usual, you get
dizzy, you can't drive, talk or walk. That's why
places that sell alcohol say you should not drive if
you have been drinking. The less a person weighs the
faster the alcohol gets around your body.
Read the label
Any product with alcohol has to say
how much alcohol is in it. An example could be red
wine. It is 14% alcohol. The bottle can say how much
alcohol is in the drink. We call this "proof". Proof
is a half a percent of alcohol. Whiskey might be "80
proof," which would be 40% alcohol content.
