Man Who Suffers From Diabetes Type 1 Creates Gilpin Family Whisky By Distilling Urine From Diabetics–Real Story

Posted Aug 29 2010 10:10pm

Yes indeed the healthcare/alcohol articles seem to get stranger all the time.  The image inventor, James Gilpin has figured out how to use the urine from diabetics to make whiskey, which he states people with diabetes should not drink so I guess it something you share with your non diabetic friends.

I thought those folks who were putting vitamins in Vodka were a bit out there but this beats that story.

From the Website:

“Whisky Export. Sugar heavy urine excreted by diabetic patients is now being utilized for the fermentation of high-end single malt whisky for export. The Whisky market is growing faster then any other alcoholic beverage worldwide. With a prevalent genetic weakness being exposed in the northern hemisphere leading to a sharp rise in type two diabetes, economists have found a new exportable commodity to exploit and are keen to capitalize on this resource quickly.”

“Large amounts of sugar are excreted on a daily basis by type-two diabetic patients especially amongst the upper end of our aging population. As a result of this diabetic patients toilets often have unusual scale build up in the basin due and rapid mold growths as the sugar put into the system acts as nutrients for mold and bacteria growth. Is it plausible to suggest that we start utilizing our water purification image systems in order to harvest the biological resources that our elderly already process in abundance?James Gilpin is a designer and researcher with a specific interest in the future of health care and the implementation of new biomedical technologies.

You have to be a diabetic to contribute to the processing end of things.  You just can’t make this stuff up.  I get these strange thoughts of Waterworld on writing this up.  Someone asks about making this at home which he doesn’t suggest as it’s not quite ready to be a consumer product off the shelf yet. 

This is a bit controversial and I myself am not quite sure what to make of it but add it along to the world of strange and diverse technologies appearing.  BD
