Drinking alcohol is fun – the after-effects, less so. It is little wonder, then, that people the world over have sought remedies to mitigate the dreaded hangover. In this conversation we put some of the better known myths to scientific scrutiny.

For example: there is a widely held belief that a glass of milk before a heavy session can help to lessen the effects of alcohol by “lining your stomach”. Some Mediterranean countries prefer to line their stomach with a spoon of olive oil. But, biologically speaking, there is no such thing as “lining your stomach”. If there is any effect, it is through slowing your stomach emptying.

Join Dr Duane Mellor for an entertaining, and factual talk on the myths related to dodging a hangover, as well as some useful tips on how to best prepare yourself after a night on the sauce.
