ALCOHOL: AN ASTONISHING MOLECULE






The substance has nourished and intoxicated animal life long before humans walked upright. 

Yet our manipulation and consumption of alcohol led to profound physical and cultural effects—and helped make us who we are.

For many, food is the best cure — something to make you feel better, whether it's mental or not. 

There are the boring options —cheesy pastasegg platters — but there are intriguing ones, too. 

Read on to see the list of best hair-of-the-dog dishes.

1790: THE MANY DANGERS OF ALCOHOLISM






After the Revolutionary war, Americans were drinking staggering amounts of alcohol. 

Tastes were swiftly changing from ciders and beers, the preference of colonial times, to hard liquors from the nation’s earliest distilleries. 

By 1830, each person, on average, was swilling more than seven gallons of alcohol per year.




IS CHLORELLA THE ULTIMATE HANGOVER CURE?






Chlorella is a single-celled, fresh water algae which is cultivated mostly in Asia. 
It has a very tough, indigestible cellulose wall, so it is milled after harvesting into powder or tablet form to enable it to be absorbed by the body.
Tipper Lewis, head herbalist at Neal's Yard Remedies, tells HuffPost UK Lifestyle that chlorella has the highest chlorophyll levels of the plant world at 3-5%. 
That'll explain why it's so green.
"It's also packed with a substance called Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) which allows chlorella to go through its reproductive cycle in one day."
In Japan, it's one of the top super foods. Lewis says that seven million people consume it daily.
"Research after nuclear disasters showed it helps eliminate uranium, cadmium and lead. 
It’s used to eliminate mercury from amalgam fillings" and is also great to take after a boozy bender - "another Japanese study showed taking 4-6g of chlorella before drinking reduced hangovers by 96%".

Says one of our vendors:

We must order seven cases of Platinum 7-X vodka to allow us the privilege of buying one bottle of Pappy Van Winkle.


NO THANKS!

TONIGHT @ BoHenry's







PROFESSOR NUTT'S HANGOVER PILLS





A professor at Imperial College London is trying to come up with a pill that could cure hangovers quickly.
Professor David Nutt, who is neuropsychopharmacology at Imperial College London, is working on two 'wonder drugs' that could help hangovers.
The first is called Chaperone, and it reduces the effects of alcohol on the body and if made widely available, the pill could be used as a quick way to sober up after a night out and may even reduce the risk of drink driving, although Nutt notes that the price would need to be set high to avoid abuse.
The second drug is called 'alscosynth'.
It is a non-toxic inebriate drink which mimics the euphoric sensation of being drunk, but significantly reduces other less welcome side effects of alcohol such as hangovers, aggression, loss of control and generally embarrassing behavior.
