According to science, the cure to a hangover isn't necessarily a massive feed of greasy food and endless coffee. 

Some Australian scientists at CSIRO (The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation), have found that a pear or 220ml of pear juice before drinking, then it can dramatically reduce the symptoms of a hangover.

The researchers believe that the pear juice helps to metabolise the alcohol in the blood.

"Reductions were seen in blood acetaldehyde levels, the toxic metabolic thought to be responsible for the hangover symptoms, with pear juice consumption. Overall hangover severity, as measured by a 14 item hangover symptom scale, was significantly reduced in the pear group compared to those having a placebo drink, with the most pronounced effect seen on the specific symptom of ‘trouble concentrating".Manny Noakes - Research Director, CSIRO
