Prince of Darkness contains novel mutations [Ozzy Osbourne]

Researchers studying the genetics of musician and reality television star Ozzy Osbourne presented some interesting findings at last Friday’s TEDMED conference. The Prince of Darkness is home to quite a variety of never-seen-before genetic mutations.

Unsurprisingly, most of Ozzy’s mutations involve genes linked to addiction and the absorption of alcohol and amphetamines. Some of these were novel mutations. He is also 2.5 times as likely to experience hallucinations when smoking marijuana and he is likely to be adversely affected by caffeine.

The 61-year-old singer commented that he was not aware of any marijuana-related hallucinations because he had always been on other drugs when he smoked marijuana. [Asylum]
