Bees 'hold key to alcohol misuse'

Scientists believe the honey bee may hold the key to understanding how alcohol addiction affects humans.

Researchers at Ohio State University in the US have found that bees react to alcohol in the same way as people do.

During the experiments, bees were given ethanol - the intoxicating ingredient of alcohol. The team found it affected their flying, walking and grooming.

It took a scientist to work this out? If you fill a creature up with alcohol it will get pissed, lose co-ordination and fall over? Awesome discovery. I always thought it was the mixers!
