Could ‘alcosynth’ provide all the joy of booze – without the dangers?
Scientist David Nutt memorably said alcohol is more dangerous than crack. Now, he is trying to invent a healthy synthetic alternative, and the race is on to get it to market‘This is what my brain looks like,” says David Nutt, showing me an intense abstract painting by a friend of his that is sitting on the windowsill in his office. Nutt’s base at Hammersmith hospital has a cosy, lived-in feel – a stark contrast to the gleaming white laboratory he oversees as di rector of the neuropsychopharmacology unit at Imperial College London.

Liquor Before Beer, Never Fear? New Study Says Order Doesn ’ t Matter
BOSTON (CBS) – Liquor before beer, never fear? Or beer for liquor, never sicker? Sound familiar? If you’ve been following this age-old advice, a new study says you can stop. Researchers say, bottom line, if you drink too much, you’ve bought yourself a hangover. It’s not clear why we get hangovers but for years people have relied on old folk sayings. Apparently in Europe, it’s common to hear, ”Beer before wine, you’ll be fine.” To test this theory, researchers in Germany and the United Kingdom studied 90 volunteers and found that it didn’t matter if they drank beer befor...

This Study Disproves a Common Myth About Hangovers
Hangovers are virtually unavoidable for the drinking public. But despite how common they are, scientists don’t fully understand how to cure or prevent hangovers, or even what causes them. In the absence of evidence, people have come up with plenty of their own rituals, from pre-bedtime routines (chugging water) to strict rules about when to drink which type of alcohol (beer before wine). A new study, however, provides novel insights into hangovers. No matter what type of booze you drink first, it finds, your hangover will be just the same.
