Professor creates synthetic alcohol, no more hangover

A new type of synthetic alcohol has been developed, one that would allow people to enjoy all the effects of a few drinks without the regular hangover.alcohol-barThe new drink called ‘alcosynth’ was created by Imperial College Professor, David Nutt and its designed to mimic all the positive effects of alcohol without causing dry mouth, nausea and headaches. The Professor and former Government drugs advisor said that by 2050, he hopes alcosynth could completely replace regular alcohol. He also mentioned that he had patented around 90 different alcosynth compounds.

“It will be there alongside the scotch and the gin, they’ll dispense the alcosynth into your cocktail and then you’ll have the pleasure without damaging your liver and your heart,” he said.” also adding that alcosynth goes very well with mojitos.

By researching substances that work on the brain in a similar way to alcohol, Professor Nutt and his team have been able to design a drug which they say is non-toxic and replicates the positive effects of alcohol.

“We know a lot about the brain science of alcohol; it’s become very well understood in the last 30 years. So we know where the good effects of alcohol are mediated in the brain, and can mimic them. And by not touching the bad areas, we don’t have the bad effects.”

According to Professor Nutt, the effects of alcosynth last around a couple of hours just like traditional alcohol. He said he and his team have also managed to limit the effects of drinking too much alcosynth, so in theory it would be impossible to ever feel too ‘drunk’. “We think the effects round out at about four or five ‘drinks’, then the effect would max out” he said.
