As if regular worms weren’t gross enough, scientists have now created “mutant worms”. What’s so special about these modified creepy crawly creatures? Well, they can actually keep you from getting shit-faced drunk. When ordinary worms are given alcohol, they get totally wasted on booze and begin to slither from side to side. Mutant worms, on the other hand, can drink you under the table. No matter how much hooch they guzzle, these guys slink around unfazed, ultimately passing the sobriety test.
Researchers hope that studying these inebriated critters will help them to figure out how to treat alcohol addiction in humans. Until then, bottoms up on that tequila bottle and don’t think twice about gulping that worm. Know more.
