Dr. Silkworth Visionary

Interesting journal article on the genetic/physiological link of ADH genes with Alcohol dependence among Irish population sample

Journal’s Conclusion:

We found evidence for the association of several *ADH* genes with AD in a sample of Western European origin. The significant interaction effects between markers in *ADH* and *ALDH* genes suggest possible epistatic roles between alcohol metabolic enzymes in the risk for AD.

Terms:

ADH = *Alcohol dehydrogenases* (*ADH*) are a group of dehydrogenase enzymes

*AD* = alcohol dependence

population studied – Irish

Big Book:

It is incredible to think that the Dr’s opinion…. came years before the discovery of ADH genes… thanks to science today we can really see the physical/genetic factors that cause alcoholism

In the alcoholic the ADH enzymes that┬ádon’t┬ábreak down the ethanol properly account for what lies behind what Dr Silkworth identifies as the physical craving…
