... Avoid Hangover

Cecil’s Article

FWIW my informants tell me medical professionals turn up to inhale an hour’s pure oxygen at the hospital, which will apparently remove the symptoms of the hungover.

I don’t see how pure oxygen can get rid of Vitamin B deficiency and dehydration, which are the main causes of a hangover.

Since this is about Cecil’s column rather than a Staff report, I’m moving it to the appropriate forum.

Whoops, and since I see that there is already a thread on this topic, I’m going to close this one and direct any commentators to: http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=602389

I am also copying these two posts (from Sevastopol and EvilTOJ into that thread.
