	A can of fava beans is said to contain a clinical dose of
	dopamine.  Couldn't notice any effect, myself.
	
	But many such drugs, taken over a period of time, will
	inhibit the body's natural production of the substance.
	Parkinsonian symptoms might result.  I suggest you check
	the CPS or PDR drug manual for side effects of L-Dopa
	before proceeding with this experiment!
