Man's Own Beer Belly Fermented Own Beer - Gets Drunk Without Drinking

Source:  SCIRP.

I'm not a beer drinker.  I don't drink whatsoever.  For fun or otherwise.  Just a personal preference.  But I find this story interest enough to share.

A man, 61 years old, somehow without drinking, is able to get drunk.  His wife used a breathalyzer is able to document alcohol level in his blood as  high as .40.  Apparently, he was suffering from Gut Fermentation Syndrome also known as Auto-Brewery Syndrome.

Apparently, presence of a bacteria, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, is able to use the carbohydrate diet the man eats and turn it into alcohol. It's a wonder the man didn't die of alcohol poisoning. This is essentially caused by an excessive growth of yeast in the man's gut.
