New Year's Recipes and Tips
The Trouble with Bubbles
Incidentally, I have a theory on why champagne hangovers can be the most ravaging of all.
It's not the bubbles, I suspect, but the unhealthy way we often drink champagne: at parties where we're drinking late, we're drinking often, and without food or water on the side. Hit the dance floor, and we're dehydrating ourselves even more.
When I drink champagne with dinner, I don't experience even the faintest of headaches. But weddings and New Year's celebrations? The champagne can really knock me down if I'm not careful.
The Latest in Hangover Research
An article in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) that debunks common medical myths includes this unsettling fact about the hangover: It cannot be cured.
The crack truth squad at the BMJ goes on to say that the only way to avoid a hangover is...not to drink so much.
