Those who need to gain some knowledge about the best way to avoid hangovers should remember the following important rule:
In case you crave a drink, do not consume alcoholic beverages. Better have a glass of mineral water.
After alcohol gets in your blood stream, it causes the so-called “euphoric effect”. Afterwards however, such pleasant effect vanishes and under the influence of certain ferments alcohol turns into a strong poison-acetaldehyde. Then, under the influence of other ferments, acetaldehyde gets transformed into harmless, even healthy acetate.
However, the so-called “Asian gene” which scientists detected in more than two thirds of all Russians programs exceptionally high activity of the first group of ferments. What this means is that a person with this gene tends to get drunk ten times faster than a regular individual. As a result, the poison is being produced in one’s blood stream ten times faster, thus resulting in terrible hangovers and possible future cirrhosis.
-You should consume a drink entitled “oyster”: pour a bit of vegetable oil in a glass, add 1 egg yolk, add two table spoons of tomato juice, one tea spoon of cognac, add salt, pepper and drink it at one gulp.
