Transcript of avoid alcohol
Alcohol is a drug that...
slows down parts of the brain,
makes you feel more relaxed,
and makes it harder to think clearly.
Alcohol is made from fermenting (sometimes distilling)
fruits, vegetables, or grains.
Alcohol itself is a clear liquid. The colour in beer, spritzers, wine, and other alcoholic drinks comes from other ingredients and from the process of fermentation.
