 You Could Soon be Hearing About Healthy Alcohol

Within two years we may have the opportunity to raise a toast to healthy alcohol which reportedly enables the same happy feeling but without hangovers.

A drug expert, researching this idea is hopeful of getting healthy alcohol within two years but it all depends on getting people to fund his research.


Professor David Nutt says that 'healthy alcohol' could be in the market within two years especially if someone will fund his research.

The professor explains how party goers can consume the drink and enjoy the fuzzy feeling. Once they are done with the feeling they can pop in an antidote pill which can restore their sobriety.

According to Professor Nutt, this harm-free booze will 'revolutionize' healthcare.

Professor Nutt said: 'You can always find an antidote for it, so you have the pleasure of being inebriated, take another drug, wake up, sober up and drive home safely. I have taken things like this when trying to work out how these drugs work on the brain. I know the antidote works. I was in a state of intoxication and five minutes later I was giving a lecture.'

'I think this would be a serious revolution in health benefits, just like the electronic cigarette is going to revolutionize the smoking of tobacco. I find it a bit weird we haven't been talking about this before because it is such an obvious target for health improvement.'

In his words, it may be possible to get drunk without falling ill.
