Bacon sandwich

Theory: It is the hangover cure for many — its smell and taste often prove irresistible. Tradition has it that the bread soaks up the alcohol.

Hangover rating: 5/5 A recent study at Newcastle University’s Centre for Life confirmed that a bacon sarnie can indeed provide relief. “Bread doesn’t soak up alcohol but is high in carbohydrates that boost blood-sugar levels and speed up the metabolism, helping to get rid of alcohol quickly,” says the researcher Elin Roberts. “Bingeing on alcohol depletes brain neurotransmitters but bacon, which is rich in protein, contains amino acids that top these up and make you feel better.”

A Bacon sandwich is a great cure for not only hangovers, but also: migraines, broken hearts, toothaches, ED, jet lag, pulled hamstring, weakness, chicken pox, mono, low self esteem, and many other common illnesses.

I believe it.

Whenever I've been hungover (and there's been plenty of those times), shitty, greasy food ALWAYS makes me feel better.

I like hot coffee with ANYTHING having to do with bacon.  Hash browns are also a great food for hangovers.
