Science Says Bacon Sandwiches Cure Hangovers

April 7, 2009

At the Newcastle University Centre for Life, they’re doing some extremely important research on bacon and alcohol.  In a related story, so am I in my apartment. 

Their research, though, is a little more substantial and concerned with “proof.”  This is a less-fun approach to science, but it’s one that worked for them because they proved that eating bacon sandwiches cures your hangover:

Bread is high in carbohydrates and bacon is full of protein, which breaks down into amino acids. Your body needs these amino acids, so eating them will make you feel good.

Talk about having your cake bacon and eating it, too.
