Naked Scientist reveals the real cure for a hangover (and its not hot wings!)

The best therapy for a hangover is the use of oral re-hydration therapy which is the same remedy given to people who have suffered from dehydration. The Naked Scientist says this remedy is equivalent to a sugar and salt in water solution.

Literally a mixture of sugar and salt which replace the lost body fluids and reset your chemical equilibrium.

Dr Chris Smith, Naked Scientist

The Naked Scientist also explains why birds wake have similar sleeping patterns to humans, health properties of honey and how quantum computing works.
