SOP's Alcohol Decomposition


Soldiers implanted with the Sons of the Patriots nanomachines are unaffected by alcohol because when it enters their body, it is broken down into oacetaldehyde by alcohol dehydrogenase. Acetaldehyde is a known toxin harmful to the human body, and is the source of the dreaded hangover. The Sons of the Patriots nanomachines, however, keep soldiers in prime fighting condition by rapidly breaking down all alcohol and acetaldehyde in their body. That is why they do not become intoxicated when consuming alcohol.
