Ever wanted to cut your booze bill down? Well Matthew Hogg, who lives in the United Kingdom, has a pretty interesting way of going about it.
Auto-brewery syndrome is an extremely rare and apparently definitely real condition that causes your body to essentially create its own alcohol, and Matthew Hogg suffers from it.
