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...

The Guardian view on the science of hangovers: no more research needed | Editorial
Raise a glass, though only one, to the selfless German students and Swedish sailors who have offered up their livers to scienceAsa recent scientific paper points out, “acute alcohol-induced hangover constitutes a significant, yet understudied, global hazard and a large burden to society”. There can be few readers wholly unaware of this, yet the authors go on to point out that acute hangover-associated symptoms give rise to “reduced productivity, impaired pr ofessional performance (eg falling asleep at work), workplace absenteeism, and academic underperformance”. Never on Mondays, of course.So it is ...

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.
