If you could get drunk WITHOUT having to deal with hangovers, fighting, spending money, or having to be with your friends . . . wouldn't life be FANTASTIC?
David Nutt is a neuroscientist at Imperial College in London. And he says he's created, quote, "an alcohol substitute" that has the exact same effect on you as if you were really drunk . . . only without all the side effects.
When you drink the alcohol substitute, you don't get aggressive or emotional, it's not addictive, you can sober up INSTANTLY just by drinking an antidote, and it doesn't cause a hangover.
Unfortunately, it's not going to be available anytime soon. David says he needs funding to finish experimenting and get it on the market. He's reached out to alcohol companies to partner up, but they obviously haven't been interested.
He thinks . . . or at least hopes . . . this will turn out to be like e-cigarettes, which the tobacco companies rejected at first, but ended up producing once they saw how much money they could make. (ABC News)
