There are people who may feel drunk even if they haven’t taken a sip of alcohol. They feel lazy and drunk and people might consider them drunkards. This is not because they are addicts or drink too often but because of a rare disease that can actually convert the food in stomach into alcohol.
This disease is called auto-brewery syndrome. Its other name is Gut Fermentation Syndrome.
In this disease, a type of yeast ‘Saccharomyces cerevisaie’ ferments the food in the stomach that consequently producers ethanol. Ethanol is found in beer, wine and spirits.
Its effects are horrible where a person can suddenly become very drunk at random times throughout the day. It may also lead to hangovers, chronic fatigue, and other side effects of alcoholism.
