Why is ethyl alcohol not toxic?

Ethyl alcohol is toxic, just not as much as other alcohols. Excessive drinking of alcohol can be fatal and chronic drinking often results in liver damage.

Ethyl alcohol is first processed into acetaldehyde and then into acetic acid, the active component of vinegar. Acetic acid is easily metabolized by the body.
