Hangover Cures: The Ultimate Experiment
A couple weeks ago, we did some scientific research on how to beat a hangover. While it had lots of excellent advice and included scientific terms like "vasopressin" and "congeners," we realize that we didn't give you the information you need to truly beat a hangover.
For one thing, we didn't include a control group that was forced to lift weights and solve Japanese puzzles. For another, we obviously tested the wrong hangover remedies. Luckily, humorist David Nelson took one for the team and has come up with a full-on hangover remedy guide that will help you find the cure that will bring you physical, mental and social acuity, including cabbage, coffee and voodoo. We can't tell you what the most scientifical hangover cure was, but we decided to share our favorite moment from the experimentation.
Here's something you probably didn't know about beating a hangover by eating cabbage:
Bottom Line: I swear to god, I don't even really like cabbage, but I think it did clear my head a little bit. However, the trade off is not worth it. Between the liquor working its way out of my system, the pizza I had the previous night, and the cabbage, I didn't move my bowels, they moved me.
