How toxic is Candida's alcoholic byproduct?

I’ve read that the Candida can release a form of alcohol in your body and they claim that it is extremely dangerous for your body and liver. Frankly I don’t understand this. Most people drink some amount alcohol, and a lot of people drink it several times a week throughout their lifetime without any really apparent problems. Can you explain why this ‘Candida form” of alcohol is said to be so dangerous?

Answer: It’s true that a lot of people drink alcohol, but how many people do you know who sip on a glass of pure alcohol 24 hours a day, seven days a week?

But it’s actually more than simple alcohol which the Candida albicans release in the body of anyone who has a Candida overgrowth; it’s actually a high concentration of a by-product of alcohol metabolism called acetaldehyde, and it’s extremely toxic to the human body. This is the chemical that’s responsible for hangovers which are normally due to high alcohol consumption. So every day that you have that Candida overgrowth in your body, 24 hours a day and seven days a week the Candida are constantly producing this toxic compound in your body which is assaulting your already weakened and overworked liver over and over again.
