Professors offer a cure, one hangover at a time

As you coast in to spring break, or break free from the SciLi, professors have a few tips for minimizing the pain of your landing.

Earlier this semester, the results of a professor’s study — that a hangover induced by dark liquors is worse than that created by clear one — were published. Now, another professor has spoken out to let us know (or, remind us) that drinking more is probably not the answer. Though it might make for a temporary fix, “More alcohol will sedate the brain again but can actually be harmful because it increases other negative symptoms such as dehydration.” Yikes.

So be safe, make good choices and remember that Spring Weekend will come soon enough. (And so will the aftermath.)
