The Nuclear-Powered Liver
This device has a built-in Blood-Alcohol Concentration (BAC) control a feedback mechanism that regulates the metabolism of alcohol.
With an NPL implant a drinker could preset the BAC regulator to, say, .12 blood-alcohol concentration to maintain that slightly lubricious
glow at parties and other social events. That way a drinker could drink any amount of booze and remain moderately disinhibited and entertaining, if not altogether brilliant in conversation.
