According to a recent study, bacon sandwiches actually do cure a hangover. Besides the obvious fact that food in general helps speed up the metabolism, helping the body to process last night’s Jager shots.
“Bread is [also] high in carbohydrates and bacon is full of protein, which breaks down into amino acids. Your body needs these amino acids, so eating them will make you feel good.”
Said Elin Roberts of Newcastle University’s Centre for Life: “Bingeing on alcohol depletes neurotransmitters too, but bacon contains a high level of aminos which tops these up, giving you a clearer head.”
Makes perfect sense to me. I always knew bacon was magical!! [Telegraph]
