HANG­OVER-FREE AL­CO­HOL

Women's Health (South Africa) - - FOOD DISCUSS! -

Be­fore you drop the mag and storm the liquor store: this is not yet a thing. But Bri­tish pro­fes­sor David Nutt has in­vented “al­cosynth”, a non-toxic syn­thetic al­co­hol that mim­ics those good-time ef­fects with­out dam­ag­ing your head, liver and heart. Even bet­ter news: it ap­par­ently won’t change the taste of your G&T. “Peo­ple want health­ier drinks,” Nutt told The In­de­pen­dent in the UK. “By 2050 al­co­hol will be gone.” An­other (pretty awe­some) thing: al­cosynth’s ef­fects last for the same length of time as reg­u­lar al­co­hol, but are capped, mak­ing it im­pos­si­ble to feel drunker than when you’ve downed four or five vodka, lime and so­das. TBH, we just want to know how this will af­fect the taste of wine.
