I was wondering about a particular friend of mine who seems to have the
capability of being able to turn glucose into alcohol! 
	After eating a packet of jelly beans this particular gentleman
actually does exhibit the effects of drinking alcohol and actually has a
blood alcohol reading despite not drinking any. 
	Is it possible that he has as part of his natural microflora oa
fermentative microbe that produce the ethanol and thus affecting him as it
passes through the small intestine.
	Thanks- Xaran.
