What will alcohol do to the density of urine?

Alcohol actually affects the brain which in turn, affects urine production. ADH (anti-diuretic hormone)is a hormone produced in the hypothalamus and excreted by the pituitary gland. This hormone makes the kidney absorb the water in the bloodstream. When a person drinks alcohol, the excretion of ADH hormone is decreased. Therefore, the kidney does not absorb the water as it should. Then more urine is made. When more urine is made, it is less dense. Because the ADH hormone is decreased, people can produce too much urine and get dehydrated from drinking too much alcohol.

All other forms of alcohol are deadly poisons to humans and have absolutely no enjoyable effects whatsoever. Therefore it would be an utter waste of time and resources to test for non drinkable alcohols.
