Kudzu Curbes Binge Drinking?

File this under weirdly fascinating. Here’s a juicy extract:

Mr. Lukas’ team at Harvard-affiliated McLean Hospital set up a makeshift “apartment” in a laboratory, complete with a television, reclining chair and a refrigerator stocked with beer.
Findings show that subjects who took kudzu drank an average of 1.8 beers per session, compared with the 3.5 beers consumed by those who took a placebo.
Mr. Lukas is not certain why but speculates that kudzu increases blood alcohol levels and speeds up its effects. More simply put, the subjects needed fewer beers to feel drunk.
“That rapid infusion of alcohol is satisfying them and taking away their desire for more drinks,” he said. “That’s only a theory. It’s the best we’ve got so far.”
