Researchers from Thomas Jefferson University (here in Philadelphia) have found the best cure for a hangover and it is pretty obvious: Coffee & Aspirin.

From the report:

Ethanol brings on headaches thanks to a chemical acetate it can produce and even low doses can affect some people more than others, said the study.

Professor Michael Oshinsky, of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, induced headaches in rats using small amounts of ethanol.

He then gave them doses of caffeine and anti-inflammatories to find it blocked the acetate and relieved the headaches. (Credit: Gizmodo)
