  • Saeeda Fatima Pakistan Ethanol, methanol, formaldehyde and formic acid are produced as a result of the metabolism and breakdown of various reactions after drinking teh alcohol.breakdown mechanism of ethanol os more rapid as compared to the methanol but on the other way methanol could be more drastic effects than ethanol because of its delayed flushing effects and hangover (sweating, nausea and rapid pulse.So it may contribute more to the accidents and other mishaps.methanol breakdown products like formaldehyde and formic acid are really toxic causing blindness and even death.some people which use low quality brands of alcohol suffer from these problems like blindness etc
