The absinth, however, not at all owes this to this as such but the loss of sight can be explained by methanol you could prove scientifically only later. Methanol, also called wood alcohol, is built up chemically similarly as ethanol, the alcohol which is edible for us people. Methanol results mainly at an improper distillation or at others for attempts to slip up with the production of absinth (or every other spirits). Has this one to adhere to every big pub thanks to the laws and regulations, the methanol content is so low that the worst one, what can happen to one, a terrible hangover is in the next morning, the drinks are anyway practically methanol freely most. Also various other syndromes taken to connection with absinth can be explained by such a bungling at the production. Effect indeed got the absinth sometimes vast amounts added to substances to health endangering, out of various motives in the 19th century just at cheaper brands which usually still improves someplace between greed for profit and the hope for one the absinths lay.
Of course also the ban on absinth drinks was surely looked well from this point of view and the validation sensible - lets the fact that food quality controls have removed these problems extensively the absinth as sensible seem, since a cleanly distilled absinth was accused from high-quality ingredients of hardly such symptoms. Who has that is checked his curiosity on this new old cult drink till now out of fear of physical resultant damages this one can do without doubts a bottle of absinth tell one trusts this best of course with a dealer.
