Alcohol - A Disease?

By Ahmed Deedat

If alcoholism is a disease then it is the only disease that

  is sold in bottles
  is advertised in newspapers, magazines, radios and television
  is contracted by the will of man
  has licensed outlets to spread it
  produces revenue for the government
  brings violent deaths on the highways
  has no germs or viral cause
  propels one's health to self-destruction
  destroys family life and increases crime.
