All the muscular tissues are wrapped up in membranes, and also the fasciculi, or bundles and fibers of muscular tissues, have their membranous sheathing. The brain and also back cord are wrapped up in three membranes; one nearby to themselves, a pure vascular framework, a network of blood-vessels; one more, a slim serous structure; a 3rd, a solid fibrous framework. The eyeball is a framework of colloidal humor and membranes, as well as of nothing else.
These membrane layers are the filters of the body. "In their lack, there could possibly be no structure of structure, no solidification of tissue, neither natural mechanism. Passive themselves, they, nonetheless, separate all structures into their respective positions and adaptations.".
In order to make completely clear to your mind the activity and use of these membranous developments, and the means in which liquor weakens them, and blocks their work, we quote once more from Dr. Richardson:.
"The animal obtains from the vegetable globe as well as from the planet the types of food as well as drink it requires for its food and motion. It gets colloidal types of food for its muscle mass: combustible types of food for its motion; water for the remedy of its numerous parts; salt for useful and various other physical objectives. These have all to be organized in the body; as well as they are arranged byways of the membranous envelopes. With these membrane layers, nothing could pass that is not, for the time, in a state of liquid remedy, like water or soluble salts. Water passes freely via them, salts pass openly through them, but the constructive concern of the energetic parts that is colloidal does not pass; it is preserved in them up until it is chemically disintegrated right into the soluble sort of matter. When we take for our types of food a section of pet flesh, it is first fixed, indigestion, right into a soluble liquid before it could be soaked up; in the blood it is settled right into the colloidal fluid problem; in the solids it is put down within the membranes right into brand-new framework, as well as when it has actually played its part, it is digested once again, if I might say so, right into a crystalloidal soluble material, all set to be brought away and also changed by enhancement of new matter, then it is dialysed or passed through, the membranes right into the blood, and also is disposed of in the excretions.
If these membranes are provided too porous, and let out the colloidal fluids of the blood the albumen, for example, the body so circumstanced, passes away; dies as if it were slowly hemorrhaged to death. They fail to dialyze, and also the result is, either an accumulation of the liquid in a shut dental caries, or tightening of the compound enclosed within the membrane layer, or dryness of membrane in surfaces that ought to be easily lubed as well as maintained apart. In old age we see the results of modification of membrane layer naturally caused; we see the fixed joint, the diminished as well as feeble muscle mass, the dimmed eye, the deaf ear, the enfeebled anxious function.
"It could perhaps appear, at first sight, that I am leading immediately far from the subject of the additional activity of alcohol. It is not so. I am leading straight to it. Upon all these film structures liquor exerts a direct perversion of action. It produces in them a thickening, a diminishing as well as an inactivity that lowers their useful power. That they might function quickly and also similarly, they need to be whatsoever times accused of water to saturation. If, right into contact with them, any kind of representative is brought that deprives them of water, then is their work meddled with; they cease to divide the saline constituents properly; and, if the evil that is thus started, be allowed to proceed, they acquire upon their consisted of concern in whatever body organ it may be positioned, and condense it.
"In quick, under the prolonged impact of liquor those modifications which take location from it in the blood corpuscles, reach the various other natural components, including them in structural damages, which are always unsafe, and are frequently inevitably deadly.".
