Tee-total Texan whose family feared he was an alcoholic cannot stay sober as his stomach turns food into 'beer'.
- The 61-year-old suffers from auto-brewery syndrome
- Blood tests showed he was five times over the limit but had not had a drink
- His stomach turns starchy food like bread and pasta into beer
The 61-year-old Texan is a human brewery and try as he might, he cannot stay sober.
Suffering from auto-brewery syndrome, his stomach produces brewer's yeast that goes into his blood stream, creating the exact same effect as beer.
He gets drunk the moment he wakes up, at church, at work, or out walking with his family.
Distraught, his wife could not understand how her husband managed to fit his drinking into the day without her even notice.A first glance a drunk Texan isn't much of a story. A drunk Texan that doesn't drink is a head turner. Apparently Auto Brewery Syndrome is a real, but rare condition. I wonder what you have to do to catch it. It would make spaghetti night more enjoyable for me.
