Soused swine

Other people’s research often sounds like so much more fun than one’s own. Today at rounds I learned there is active research going on into the effects of serving vodka to pigs with metabolic syndrome. Apparently it shows some benefit.

It’s still unclear how this applies to humans, or how it should alter the advice clinicians give their patients.

Self-experimentation is recommended. (But you probably shouldn’t take my advice. I’m not that kind of doctor.)
