Though when we say "you" we mean "scientists with the appropriate time and resources to devote to a very fragile and complicated process". Scientists from U.C. Berkeley, Concordia University in Montreal and University of Calgary have developed a fifteen step process using three different genetically modified yeasts to turn glucose into morphine. Eventually, it could be used to produce opiod drugs easier but at the moment it takes 53 gallons of the specialized yeast to create 30 mg of morphine.

A study at Granada University of Spain seem to suggest than beer is better than water at rehydrating the body after exercise.

Here's what the researchers did:

Asked 25 students to run on a treadmill at 104 degrees Fahrenheit to the point of exhaustion Measured their levels of hydration, motor skills and their ability to concentrate Half the students were given water to drink and the other half were given Spanish lager

Result:
Those who were given beer had slightly better hydration levels than those who were given plain water.
