Chilean scientists have developed a new vaccine against alcoholism that gives the sensation of a terrible hangover after just a few drinks.
The new alcoholism vaccine, which works like patches used for kicking smoking, is believed to be more efficient as it specifically targets liver cells.
It works by neutralizing aldehyde dehydrogenase, a group of enzymes that metabolizes alcohol and are therefore responsible for alcohol tolerance, said the lead Chilean researcher Juan Asenjo.

I am all for a preventative treatment for those who have a problem with drink which makes them a danger to other people, or themselves through drunkeness. However, if there is any chance, ANY chance at all that this would end up, in any nation , being used to FORCE people who just like a beer to stop drinking, then there will be trouble.
I believe its every mans right to destroy himself, as long as its only themselves they are destroying, I dont have a problem. Its thier choice, and no one, no government and no scientist has any right to change that.
