What's The Difference Between Manmade Methanol and Natural Methanol?

There is a difference between the methanol used to make aspartame, fuels, antifreeze and solvents as opposed to the methanol found naturally in foods such as peach pits and tomato seeds and skin. Synthetic methanol is a manmade replica of natural methanol, and one must be cautious with synthetic versions of methanol. The human body was not intended to ingest isolated forms of methanol, especially synthetics, and it is impossible to predict all potential complications it can have on human health.

In the 1920s during Prohibition, methanol was used in “stills” to make illegal alcohol called “white lightening.” Due to its alcohol content, the separation from its counterpart ethanol, and the potency of bootlegged booze, people drinking homemade white lightening were going blind. The connection between methanol and blindness at this time was never questioned.

Methanol found in minute amounts in nature never occurs in isolated form. It is most commonly found with ethanol, and the combination of the two alcohols counter-balance one another, never allowing one to adversely dominate the other. In other words, methanol denatures ethanol and visa versa.

As with most manmade replicas of natural elements, the body may be tricked into thinking the chemical is natural, but once it attempts to “digest” it and tries to harvest the chemical for food and nutrients, the manmade elements turn from totally “harmless” (as the manufacturers claim) to toxic.
