This Man’s Condition Means He Gets Drunk From Eating Potatoes

Basically, this man's rare condition means that it's "cheap at chips" for him to get drunk... literally. 

Nick Hess, from Ohio, has 'auto-brewery syndrome' which means that carbs ferment and turn into alcohol inside of him. 

The 35-year-old wasn't aware of his condition until quite late in his life. Apparently many people in his family were worried that he was secretly drinking before dinner and events. His wife even recorded his slurring and stumbling to show to him, as he was usually unable to recall any of it. 

"When she first accused me of being drunk, without drinking, I thought she was crazy.

"I looked into my eyes [in the footage] and could see I wasn't there. It was terrifying, I couldn't remember it," he said.

Doctors were able to pick the cause, though, and discovered that Nick had the extremely rare condition.

Nick controls the condition with a carb-free diet and medication.
