“Alcohol, sugar and cream are a destructive combo”: surgeon Umnov named ice cream that destroys the brain and stomach

Alcohol-based ice cream can cause significant harm to internal organs. Surgeon Alexander Umnov spoke about this.

— Ethanol, sugar and sometimes cream are a destructive combo. Alcohol destroys the gastrointestinal tract, including the stomach and brain, and suppresses the development of cells of the central nervous system, the doctor noted.

This leads to the fact that even at 18 years old you can “earn” a stomach ulcer, excess weight, type 2 diabetes, damaged pancreas, heart problems and mental problems.

Ice cream with alcohol is a dangerous delicacy that threatens the development of alcohol addiction.

One scoop of ice cream with a strong drink results in at least 0.6 ppm (or 2–8%) alcohol in the blood, Umnov said earlier. In this state, the reaction to what is happening is already slowed down; for example, driving a car is already dangerous.

— It is also possible to develop alcohol dependence. The effect of alcohol is cumulative. If you ate one ball today, then later you will need 2 balls to improve your mood, and so on, the expert emphasized.

Moreover, sugar also causes addiction.

Gastroenterologist Ekaterina Kashukh also calls for caution.

– Ethyl alcohol and fusel oils, which are present in alcoholic drinks, harm the heart and blood vessels, damage and lead to the death of hepatocytes – liver cells. The nervous system and brain suffer. In a child’s body, alcohol from the stomach is absorbed into the blood especially quickly, so that even after a seemingly harmless dessert with alcohol, intoxication can occur, she noted.

If we assume that the child will eat this ice cream several times a week, the consequences will be long-lasting.
