A scientist exploring the effects of alcohol on the brain said a cure for Hangover is closer than you think. He’s busy devising a substitute beverage that can eliminate the toxic health effect of alcohol on the liver, heart and brain.

Writing in The Guardian, David Nutt — a professor at Imperial College in London — said he had identified compounds that are effective substitutes to alcohol, that mimic the effects of booze on the brain.

To test them out he had a few drinks.

‘Within minutes of taking the antidote I was up giving a lecture with no impairment whatsoever.’ – David Nutt

“In theory we can make an alcohol surrogate that makes people feel relaxed and sociable and remove the unwanted effects, such as aggression and addictiveness,” –  David Nutt.

At present Professor Nutt is seeking funding for testing and marketing the product. But one thing for sure he will have no challenge finding test subjects.
