Is There a Best Hangover Cure?

Of the hundreds of half baked hangover cures we’ve all heard are 100% sure-fire effective, there actually may be one that does in fact work, and not according to an equally hungover drinking buddy this time. This time it’s according to science!

The extra observant may have already deduced what it might be after having seen the thumbnail, but for the rest of us who don’t have the patience for time wasters like thumbnail viewing, science’s best hangover cure is a … (drumroll please) … bacon sandwich! That’s right. If bacon alone wasn’t already one of the highest rewards for having achieved our top-of-the-food-chain status, science has stepped in and declared that it comes with super powers to boot.

Apparently, drinking heavily reduces the number of neurotransmitters in the brain (among other things), and bacon contains the proteins which turn into the amino acids our body needs to restore them to proper levels. Also, eating kicks our metabolism into gear which speeds up the cleansing process.

So, next time you wake up to an invisible monkey trying to bash your head in with a cotton sledgehammer, fire up the griddle and see if you can’t bribe it away with a BLT.
