A man who was struck blind after drinking vodka that reacted with his diabetes medication had his eyesight restored by a few slugs of expensive whiskey. Figuring that the vodka had broken down into toxic methanol, doctors administered Johnnie Walker Black Label through a gastric tube. The whiskey's ethanol competed with the methanol already in the man's system, preventing it from doing further damage and allowing him to make a full recovery.
