Man Gets Drunk From Eating Food
Hold on this guy can get drunk just from eating food? I don’t know about you but if I had this issue I would be eating at the Golden Coral like every night. I always thought I liked booze and that was it. But know the truth is I love food. Also I love food even more once I am drunk. And if I can cut out the middle man and get drunk from eating delicious food then all will be superb!
“Doctors didn’t believe a 61-year-old Texas home brewer who came into an emergency room completely hammered, saying that he hadn’t had a sip of booze, NPR reports. But he was telling the truth….
Cordell and Dr. Justin McCarthy decided to take on the bizarre case, isolating the man in a hospital room for a full 24 hours. During the isolation, the man ate carbohydrate-rich foods and ended up with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.12 percent.
The man’s belly was brewing booze due to a buildup of Saccharomyces cerevisiae — a common yeast — in his gut, Cordell discovered. When he ate or drank starch-heavy foods, including bagels, pasta and soda, the yeast in his belly fermented the sugars into ethanol.” –HP
This guy has been brewing so long he has transformed himself into a yeast? Is that what I am supposed to get out of this story? Is this a real life Kafkaesque tale? Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life but do it too much and you become the very tools you use? This story is absolute bananas!
