After years of guzzling water and Gatorade to nurse your hangover, who would've thought that the best cure for your Saturday Morning Remorse was actually Sprite? Chinese scientists recently conducted a study which found that Sprite has the ability to effectively combat ethanol metabolite acetaldehyde. Other drinks, such as herbal tea, were also tested and actually seemed to make those horrible symptoms of intoxication worse. 

So the next time you wake up from a night of drinking and your head feels like Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa circa '98 took turns swinging away at it, go get a Sprite. You'll feel much better.
