Hangovers, much like death, taxes and Donald Trump, are unpleasant facts of life. So it's great that we have people like Dr. Alyson E. Mitchell, who presented proof at a recent chemistry conference that a New Orleans hangover cure called "Old Sober" is actually a pretty good idea, scientifically speaking. The dish, also known as "yaka-mein," is the perfect storm of hangover stoppers: The salty broth replenishes electrolytes, the noodles give you carbs, and the egg garnish is a great source of vitamin B1. Mitchell calls the dish "a good example of intuitive science — an effective remedy, and with the scientific basis revealed only years later." Thanks, science! [Source]
