Yale University – Students Cure Hangovers?

A couple of Yale University Science students claim they have created a natural hangover cure. You are supposed to drink this concoction before a night of alcohol consumption. This product is considered a dietary supplement.

They named their concoction sunup. This drink is supposed to help circumvent loss in four key areas of your body that may cause a hangover:

* acetaldehyde buildup
* glutamine rebound
* immunologic disturbances
* vitamin & electrolyte loss

By drinking this liquid before consuming alcohol, your liver may not suffer as much damage. Maggie Morse and Liam McClintock worked on this mixture. They performed a test of their drink on friends and fellow students.

If you pledge $5 to their Indigo project you will receive one packet of Sunup. They claim they are going to start shipping packets April of two thousand seventeen. This powder is supposed to help you receive proper rest after drinking, which is a common problem after alcohol consumption.

“Although scientists are still trying to fully understand hangovers, there are four main contributors that have been identified by scientific research: acetaldehyde buildup, glutamine rebound, immunologic disturbances, and vitamin and electrolyte loss”

Sprite – and Fanta Vitamin C Controversy

A Nigerian court has declared that both Sprite and Fanta are possibly dangerous when mixing with Vitamin C. Coca Cola owns both Sprite and Fanta. A Lagos high court judge ruled these soft drinks potentially poisonous.

Benzoic acid and other additives when mixed with Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, could cause a health hazard. The African National Agency For Food and Drug Administration and Control wants Nigerian Bottling Company to put warning labels on all Fanta and Sprite products. This warning label is to include a warning of mixing this soda with vitamin C.

Tests of this product in the United Kingdom revealed this potential dangerous cocktail. Africa’s Food and Drug administration is encouraged to periodically test this product for safety. Sunset yellow and benzoic acid are known to become carcinogenic.

Large amounts of these soft drinks were destroyed in the United Kingdom.
