There are 8 comments on the www.newscientist.com story from Jan 10, 2012, titled Could natural product temper booze culture's impact?. In it, www.newscientist.com reports that:

For hardened drinkers, it sounds too good to be true: a natural substance that keeps them sober no matter how much they drink, neutralises hangovers and eventually breaks the cycle of alcohol addiction. Rats are being used to test the product in California. "GABA receptors are key in the actions of alcohol and ...... targeting this interaction is a viable approach to reducing alcohol intake," says David Nutt of Imperial College London, former head of the British government's advisory committee on drugs. "Let's hope it's safe to use in humans."

I don'y understand. If someone drinks to get drunk why would they drink to not get drunk? Just save your damn money and don't drink.

Because moderate drinkers tend to out live teetotalers.

Alcohol, if not abused, has very positive health benefits.

Yes. You are right. The Government licensed electronic "news" media programs often intersperse 30 minutes of "the weather" with junk science "Health studies". These taxpayer funded or taxpayer subsidized "studies" are in the form of public relations dispatches that were cooked up by the marketing departments of $ Big Chocolate $$ Big Wine $ and other Government regulated sources.

Hucksterism of this type has always been a part of the American culture. It was not until recently, though, that Government began using hard earned taxpayer money to promote baldness cures, sleight-of-hand Government tax and control related "Global warming" scams and dangerous "legal" Government drug and food fads. Because Government's involvement in these scams is only a recent development, no one yet knows the damage they may cause.
