Large dosages cause rest, anesthesia, respiratory system failure, coma and fatality. - Impaired or unbalanced visual ability and reading (affects capacity to distinguish between seems and understand the path they are coming from); dulled smell and taste (reducing the desire to eat) and loss of pain notion; altered feeling of time and space - Impairs good motor abilities, and decreases reactions.

- Numbness and tingling in the arms and legs due to nerve damage from exhaustion of thiamine (B vitamin); when severe, can damage additional nerve being, causing shocking, etc .

Impairs the liver's ability to remove yellow-colored pigment, and skin shows up yellow (jaundice). - Liver organ damage triggers fluid to make in vulnerable parts (Edema). - Decreases creation of blood-clotting factors; could cause uncontrolled blood loss. - Liver organ accumulates body fat which can trigger liver failure (" alcohol fatty liver”), coma and death.

CARDIOVASCULAR

- Weakens the center muscle and ability to pump blood (Cardiomyopathy). - Unnatural heart indicators, irregular heartbeat and cardiovascular enlargement. - Increases stress, risk of myocardial infarction and stroke. - Prevents production of both white and red blood cellular material.

MUSCLES

-Due to lower phosphate, muscles become weaker and atrophy; discomfort, spasms and tenderness.

STOMACH/INTESTINAL/DIGESTIVE

- Soreness and damage of esophagus lining, induces severe vomiting, hemorrhaging, pain and difficulty swallowing. May contribute to can range f cancer. - Irritation of stomach cellular lining, can cause peptic ulcers, irritation, bleeding lesions and cancer.
