Asparagus should help with the hangover.
wow, so profound
Alcohol has caused more suffering and heart ache, destroyed more lives than any thing I can think of. Yet it is still socially accepted.
My brother's friend was a heavy drinker. He called my brother to tell him he was not feeling well, and my brother told him to dial 911. He decided to pick his friend up to take him to the ER. His friend died of dehydration that night by the time he reached him. People do not realize that drinking can kill in more ways than one. Liver disease is not the only cause of death.
Only thing coffee does is make wide-awake drunks.
I treat booze like rat posion. That is a little may do no harm but a lot surley is deadly. It destroys lives, I know.
What we drink is ethanol, but there can be small amounts of methanol as well. Hangovers are actually caused by the body's metabolizing methanol, creating formaldehyde. The body would, however, rather metabolize ethanol. Having another drink actually does lower hangover symptoms because it gives your body a sudden rush of ethanol, giving your liver time to work on the methanol. Booze with no methanol content, like Vodka, don't cause hangovers.
Aspirin? Real smart - take a blood thinner while drinking a blood thinner/diuretic.
The only thing I got from this was that coffee does help people stay more alert while driving drunk. The rest of this is merely proof that people over the age of 50 shouldn't write stories about current "myths" and "misunderstandings". The younger generations aren't idiots and probably never believed in these ideas anyway.
