British scientists have created a safe alcohol
British scientists have developed a drug that can cause intoxication effect without harm to health and, importantly, without the addiction. Moreover, in order to instantly sober up enough to take a specific antidote.
Professor at Imperial College in London, David Nutt and colleagues studied the effects of alcohol on the human brain, writes The Guardian. Scientists point out that alcohol is one of the oldest and most dangerous types of drugs. About 2.5 million deaths worldwide each year are due to excessive drinking. According to scientists, the cause of this is the toxicity of alcohol for all the systems of the human body, namely the brain, heart and liver.
To date, the only possible way to reduce the damage brought by the effects of alcohol is to limit its availability while increasing the cost of alcohol-containing products. But British scientists are convinced that their alternative allows the development of the most secure version of alcohol, writes top.rbc.ru.
David Nutt said that the main task for his research was the development of a new, harmless drink, which at the same time will also most delicious. And the professor does not preclude the creation of the drink as a cocktail. In addition, before the specialized enterprises will be able to manufacture products that will be sold together with the new beverage as an antidote .
As a result of the study, researchers also found that, first of all, alcohol acts on the neurotransmitter system of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which, in turn, keeps the brain in peace. Alcohol also activates the function of GABA, causing the person relaxes.
Nutt also identified five chemicals that allow testing the state of intoxication, which tests the scientist decided to spend on himself. So, when testing one of the compounds tested around 1:00 sleepy – Professor feeling more than relaxed. However, taking the antidote, a few minutes later, according to the researcher, it could even hold a lecture to students. Therefore, scientists say, immediately after receiving the antidote person can safely get behind the wheel.
Thus, a priori possible to reconstruct alcohol in any form, even in the form of, for example, tablets, science has. Besides the use of new types of “alcohol” will not result in such negative effects, such as dependence, aggressiveness, hangover. As experts say, open Nutt substance “capable of producing a revolution in health care.”
