alcohol's effects on stomach lining

Posted by theobacchus on September 12, 2009, at 20:26:25

Ive tried searching the internet through the routine google search and have yet to find a specific answer to my question. What reactions take place that cause alcohol to erode the stomach walls? The PH level of pure ethanol is very close to that of water, the only things that change that are the additives to the ethanol. Wine, beer, vodka, all have obvious additives. But as far as acidity is concerned i can find as much if not more in regular grape juice or soda. Now the fact still remains that alcohol damages the stomach lining but i was hoping someone might know more specifically how that happens. Thanks.
