The dreaded morning-after feeling could be a thing of the past after scientists in South Korea came up with a technique that allows drinkers to avoid a hangover.
A team of researchers added extra oxygen to drinks and found that the body was then able to metabolize the booze quicker and eliminate the alcohol quicker — cutting down the after effects.
Healthy people were given 8 ounce and 12 ounce drinks containing 19.5 percent alcohol by volume — all with different amounts of oxygen added. The results showed those who consumed the more highly oxygenated drinks recovered more quickly and saw their blood alcohol levels return to normal more speedily.
The only downside the researchers found was that the process also reduced the amount of time drinkers were actually drunk for.
This sounds a lot like that silly AWOL breathing apparatus that was banned a few years back that had bar patrons huffing on alcohol… though at least this time around it looks like you get to pound the drinks back old school.
