Are you one of those who are drinking big head concerns? Because his days seem to be numbered. The director of Neuropsychopharmacology at Imperial College in London, England, is working on the development of synthetic alcohol which promises to ward off unnecessary side effects of drinks. In five years, only in film classics, like "If you drink, do not marry."
David Nutt has created a molecule, called "alcoolsinto," which targets specific brain receptors.
"We know which site on the brain is responsible for the good and bad effects and which receptors are mediating these processes: gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), glutamad, and other substances like serotonin and dopamine, "he told The Guardian.
Alcarelle, the synthetic product that doesn't stop the feelings caused by drinking alcohol (such as "being happy") is developed from the molecule, but without that headache and the umbrella taste, some of the classic effects t the following day. Nutt even believes that some cancers can be avoided with the novelty.
Nutt says he expects manufacturers of alcoholic drinks to insert synthetic alcohol into their formulas. But for this, the scientist will have to work on one of the biggest challenges: the unpleasant taste of Alcarelle.
