QuickTake: Kudzu Cuts Alcohol Consumption

I've seen kudzu cover just about everything in the south. In fact, I was warned by one old timer not to stand still too long or I'd be covered in it too. It grows pretty fast, but I think the old timer was pulling my leg.

The news that kudzu reduces the consumption of alcohol is good for people who'd like to cut back but can't. It's also a positive for the economy since the overconsumption of alcohol is costly in terms of sick days, accidents, and inefficiency. I wonder if we'll soon be seeing kudzu farms, with the price of kudzu right up there with the price of soybeans.

I think that would be a good idea on cutting back on alcohol but I believe it would not last very long.

I am all for it, unfortunately I worked part time at a convenience story this spring. Alcohol was the number one selling item. I could not belive how many alcohol teenagers 21 yrs old and older people bought on a daily bases.
