The other main victim of alcoholism is liver; it tries to metabolize it, but invain, given the great amount of alcohol to face. The degradation process, infact, produces its oxidation to acetic aldeyde,(CH3-CH=O) and acetic acid (CH3-COOH) more harmful than ethylic alcohol.

This continuous stress logorates liver cells making them die and be replaced by fibrous cells. So, liver goes towards the cirrhosis that causes death.

Alcoholism also causes a precocious ageing and a weakening of many organic functions as blood circulation, digestion and the immune system.
