If you’ve ever wanted to get more than just simple satisfaction out of eating fries… well now you can. If you have this rare condition, that is.



Those with auto-brewery syndrome have high levels of yeast in their stomach, (4 times than normal), so when they eat foods with high carbs… it’s converted to alcohol. 

34-year-old Nick Hess from the UK has this condition, and only developed it a few years ago. He noticed he started to feel a little intoxicated after eating bread or fries.

Finally, a doctor came up with the auto-brewery syndrome diagnosis.

The condition was first discovered in Japan in the 1970s and doctors believe people develop it after they use antibiotics for a long time… since it’s not uncommon for your stomach bacteria levels to be thrown off.

To live with it, you have to cut out most carbs and sugar.
