Hangover Power Hour

hangoversmph.jpgThomas Jefferson University scientist, Michael Oshinsky, did real-deal research into finding a true "hangover cure" and what did he come up with? A cup of coffee and aspirin. After inducing headaches in lab rats with ethanol (it produces a chemical acetate which is the hangover itself), he found that a combination of anti-inflammatories (aspirin, ibuprofen) and caffeine blocked the acetate, thereby eliminating the hangover.
