New beer will not give you a hangover

Scientists in Australia have come up with a new beer that could spell the end of the dreaded hangover.

To make the perfect beverage, a research team at the Griffith Health Institute looked at ways to reduce dehydration, one of the main causes of a hangover. Their solution was to reduce the alcoholic content and to add electrolytes to the beer, minerals that help keep the body's fluid level balanced and which are often added to sports drinks. The result is a beer that is still essentially beer but that is far less likely to give you a hard time the following morning.

"Of the four different beers the subjects consumed, our augmented light beer was by far the most well retained by the body, meaning it was the most effective at rehydrating the subjects," said associate professor Ben Desbrow.

"While beer has long been known to contain positive nutrients resulting from its plant origins and fermentation process, the alcohol content means it goes out faster than water which increases dehydration."

So why did they have to reduce the alcohol content? Couldn't they just have increased the electrolytes ? Maybe not for some reason. They're the scientists I quess. EDIT: I do know this lady that pours a couple shots of vodka into a regular-size bottle of gatorade.

Wonder if it still does the same ammount of damage to your liver and such... Probably, as added electrolytes does nothing to stop the impact of alcohol on the liver. But, being a "low alcohol" content beer, most people would suffer little effect on their liver unless, I suppose, they drank too much.

Keep the regular alcohol content and add the electrolytes then I'll try it. As long as it doesn't taste weird.

They can call it GatorBeer. GatorAle Instead of learning to stop nonsensical and self destructive behavior, count on humans to spend time and money inventing a way to continue it with less discomfort. Once again I have to say it... the movie Idiocracy is looking more prophetic all the time.

...In order to create it, they have had to reduce the alcohol content. http://www.dailymail...esearchers.html BOOOOOO! Stupid researchers! Pretty soon we'll all be sitting around drinking cans of carbonated water and pretending we have a glow on.
