Kudzu Cocktail

As heard on WBZ 1030 this afternoon, Reuters is reporting that doctors have found that an extract made from the invasive kudzu vine (Pueraria montana var. lobata) appears to curb binge drinking. Authors of the medical study suspect that something in the kudzu makes people satisfied with a smaller amount of alcohol than they typically consume. Participants in the study were given either kudzu extract or a placebo, and were then brought to an apartment with an entertainment center and bar. Wow - where can I volunteer to be a guinea pig? :-)



This is very intresting I would like to hear more please.
