Auto-Brewery Syndrome: How to Get Drunk Without Touching a Drop of Alcohol

It used to be the subject of medical controversy, never definitively proved … Today, it is a scientific fact: auto-brewery syndrome exists! You can cultivate your own inebriation and spend a few days in the drunk tank without, for all that, having consumed a single drop of alcohol! A fermentation vat or a pocket of beer secreted within your intestines is something that could actually happen if your organism one day suddenly sets up as a traditional brewery. The effect, far from being fun, would be a serious handicap in terms of physical health and social behaviour.
