Professor David Nutt, a neuropsychopharmacologist at Imperial College London and former drugs advisor to the U.K. government, has been working. Working on a drug that mimics the effects of alcohol on the brain without, obviously, the alcohol. Nutt's case? "The drug would be consumed as a cocktail drink and targets neurotransmitters in the brain to mimic the pleasurable effects of drunkenness.""I’ve done the prototype experiments myself many years ago, where I’ve been inebriated and then it’s been reversed by the antagonist," Nutt told the BBC. “That’s what really gave us the idea. There’s no question that you can produce a whole range of effects like alcohol by manipulating the brain.”“I think this would be a serious revolution in health ... just like the e-cigarette is going to revolutionize the smoking of tobacco," he said.“I find it weird that we haven't been speaking about this before, as it's such a target for health improvement.”Just take a look at the good doctor. Obviously, a health nut.**Follow us on Twitter, Subscribe by Email, View via Our Mobile Site, or Return Home
