Brief Answer: methanol is dengerous alcohol. Detailed Answer: Hello! Thanks for reply. Contamination of alcohol with methanol means the drink that you had may be mixed with methanol. Alcohol that we usually drink is ethanol. Our body can metabolise ethanol. But our body can not metabolise methanol which is XXXXXXX alcohol and can cause symptoms that you had. Hope you understood what I want to say. Wish you good health.
