Liquor HAS NO FOOD VALUE.
Liquor has no sustenance esteem and is exceedingly restricted in its activity as a therapeutic specialists. Dr. Henry Monroe says, “each sort of substance utilized by man as sustenance comprises of sugar, starch, oil and glutinous matter blended together in different extents. These are intended for the backing of the creature outline. The glutinous standards of sustenance fibrine, egg whites and casein are utilized to develop the structure while the oil, starch and sugar are predominantly used to produce heat in the body”.
Presently it is clear that if liquor is a nourishment, it will be found to contain one or a greater amount of these substances. There must be in it either the nitrogenous components discovered mostly in meats, eggs, milk, vegetables and seeds, out of which creature tissue is assembled and waste repaired or the carbonaceous components found in fat, starch and sugar, in the utilization of which warmth and power are developed.
“The peculiarity of these gatherings of nourishments,” says Dr. Chase, “and their relations to the tissue-delivering and warmth advancing limits of man, are so positive thus affirmed by examinations on creatures and by complex tests of investigative, physiological and clinical experience, that no endeavor to dispose of the characterization has won. To draw so straight a line of outline as to farthest point the one completely to tissue or cell generation and the other to warmth and power creation through customary ignition and to prevent any force from securing compatibility under uncommon requests or in the midst of damaged supply of one assortment is, without a doubt, untenable. This does not at all nullify the way that we have the capacity to utilize these as found out historic points”.
How these substances when taken into the body, are absorbed and how they create power, are surely understood to the physicist and physiologist, who is capable, in the light of all around learned laws, to figure out if liquor does or does not have a nourishment esteem. For a considerable length of time, the ablest men in the restorative calling have given this subject the most cautious study, and have subjected liquor to each known test and test, and the outcome is that it has been, by normal assent, avoided from the class of tissue-building nourishments. “We have never,” says Dr. Chase, “seen however a solitary recommendation that it could so act, and this an unbridled estimate. One essayist (Hammond) supposes it conceivable that it might “some way or another” go into blend with the results of rot in tissues, and ‘in specific situations may yield their nitrogen to the development of new tissues.’ No parallel in natural science, nor any proof in creature science, can be found to encompass this supposition with the areola of a conceivable speculation”.
Dr. Richardson says: “Liquor contains no nitrogen; it has none of the characteristics of structure-building sustenances; it is unequipped for being changed into any of them; it is, in this way, not a nourishment in any feeling of its being a productive operators in building up the body.” Dr. W.B. Craftsman says: “Liquor can’t supply anything which is fundamental to the genuine sustenance of the tissues.” Dr. Liebig says: “Brew, wine, spirits, and so forth., outfit no component equipped for going into the sythesis of the blood, solid fiber, or any part which is the seat of the standard of life.” Dr. Hammond, in his Tribune Lectures, in which he advocates the utilization of liquor in specific cases, says: “It is not self evident that liquor experiences change into tissue.” Cameron, in his Manuel of Hygiene, says: “There is nothing in liquor with which any piece of the body can be fed.” Dr. E. Smith, F.R.S., says: “Liquor is not a genuine nourishment. It meddles with sustenance.” Dr. T.K. Chambers says: “It is clear that we must stop to respect liquor, as in any sense, a nourishment”.
“Not identifying in this substance,” says Dr. Chase, “any tissue-production fixings, nor in its separating any mixes, for example, we have the capacity to follow in the cell sustenances, nor any confirmation either in the experience of physiologists or the trials of alimentarians, it is not awesome that in it we ought to discover neither the anticipation nor the acknowledgment of valuable force.”
Not finding in liquor anything out of which the body can be developed or its waste supplied, it is beside be analyzed as to its warmth delivering quality.
Generation of warmth.
“The principal common test for a power creating sustenance,” says Dr. Chase, “and that to which different sustenances of that class react, is the creation of warmth in the blend of oxygen therewith. This warmth implies basic compel, and is, in no little degree, a measure of the near estimation of the alleged respiratory sustenances. In the event that we inspect the fats, the starches and the sugars, we can follow and gauge the procedures by which they advance warmth and are changed into essential compel, and can measure the limits of distinctive sustenances. We find that the utilization of carbon by union with oxygen is the law, that warmth is the item, and that the honest to goodness result is power, while the aftereffect of the union of the hydrogen of the sustenances with oxygen is water. On the off chance that liquor comes at all under this class of sustenances, we rightly hope to discover a portion of the confirmations which join to the hydrocarbons.”
What, then, is the consequence of analyses in this course? They have been directed through long stretches and with the best care, by men of the most noteworthy fulfillments in science and physiology, and the outcome is given in these few words, by Dr. H.R. Wood, Jr., in his Materia Medica. “Nobody has possessed the capacity to recognize in the blood any of the common consequences of its oxidation.” That is, nobody has possessed the capacity to find that liquor has experienced burning, similar to fat, or starch, or sugar, thus offered warmth to the body.
Liquor and lessening of temperature.

rather than expanding it; and it has even been utilized as a part of fevers as a hostile to pyretic. So uniform has been the affirmation of doctors in Europe and America as to the cooling impacts of liquor, that Dr. Wood says, in his Materia Medica, “that it doesn’t appear to be worth while to involve space with an examination of the subject.” Liebermeister, a standout amongst the most learned supporters to Zeimssen’s Cyclopaedia of the Practice of Medicine, 1875, says: “I since a long time ago persuaded myself, by direct investigations, that liquor, even in relatively vast measurements, does not hoist the temperature of the body in either well or wiped out individuals.” So well had this gotten to be known not voyagers, that, even before physiologists had exhibited the way that liquor diminished, rather than expanding, the temperature of the body, they had discovered that spirits decreased their energy to withstand compelling icy. “In the Northern locales,” says Edward Smith, “it was demonstrated that the whole prohibition of spirits was fundamental, with a specific end goal to hold heat under these unfavorable conditions.”
Liquor does not make you solid.
In the event that liquor does not contain tissue-building material, nor offer warmth to the body, it can’t in any way, shape or form add to its quality. “Each sort of force a creature can produce,” says Dr. G. Budd, F.R.S., “the mechanical force of the muscles, the concoction (or digestive) force of the stomach, the scholarly force of the cerebrum aggregates through the sustenance of the organ on which it depends.” Dr. F.R. Remains, of Edinburgh, subsequent to examining the inquiry, and evoking proof, comments: “From the very way of things, it will now be perceived how unthinkable it is that liquor can be reinforcing sustenance of either kind. Since it can’t turn into a piece of the body, it can’t subsequently add to its strong, natural quality, or altered force; and, since it leaves the body pretty much as it went in, it can’t, by its disintegration, create warmth power.”
Sir Benjamin Brodie says: “Stimulants don’t make apprehensive force; they simply empower you, in a manner of speaking, to go through that which is left, and after that they abandon you more needing rest than some time recently.”
Noble Liebig, so far back as 1843, in his “Creature Chemistry,” pointed out the deception of liquor producing force. He says: “The flow will seem quickened to the detriment of the power accessible for deliberate movement, however without the creation of a more prominent measure of mechanical power.” In his later “Letters,” he again says: “Wine is entirely unnecessary to man, it is always trailed by the consumption of force” though, the genuine capacity of sustenance is to give power. He includes: “These beverages advance the change of matter in the body, and are, hence, gone to by an internal loss of force, which stops to be gainful, on the grounds that it is not utilized in overcoming outward challenges i.e., in working.” at the end of the day, this awesome physicist affirms that liquor abstracts the force of the framework from doing valuable work in the field or workshop, with a specific end goal to wash down the house from the contamination of liquor itself.
The late Dr. W. Brinton, Physician to St. Thomas’, in his incredible work on Dietetics, says: “Cautious perception leaves little uncertainty that a moderate measurement of lager or wine would, as a rule, without a moment’s delay reduce the greatest weight which a solid individual could lift. Mental intensity, exactness of discernment and delicacy of the faculties are all so far restricted by liquor, as that the greatest endeavors of each are inconsistent with the ingestion of any moderate amount of aged fluid. A solitary glass will regularly suffice to bring some relief both personality and body, and to lessen their ability to something beneath their flawlessness of work.”
Dr. F.R. Remains, F.S.A., composing on the subject of liquor as a nourishment, makes the accompanying citation from a paper on “Empowering Drinks,” distributed by Dr. H.R. Incense, as long back as 1847: “Liquor is not the regular jolt to any of our organs, and thus, capacities performed in outcome of its application, have a tendency to cripple the organ followed up on.
Liquor is unequipped for being acclimatized or changed over int
