Experts Critical of Purported Hangover Curative

A new drink debuting in France claims to reduce drunkenness and lessen hangovers but has health experts wary, Fox News reported June 16. The drink, Outox, purports to „greatly speed up“ the breakdown of alcohol in the blood, which the company says has been medically tested, though this has not been independently verified. „If someone invented a product capable of really lowering the level of alcohol in the blood, he would deserve a Nobel prize,“ said Alain Rigaud, president of the French anti-alcoholism group Association Nationale de Prevention en Alcoologie et Addictologie (ANPAA).

Mildly Drunk, with No Hangover by Alcohol Substitute

Mittwoch 20. Januar 2010 von htm

Recently fired U.K. drug czar David Nutt and colleagues have developed a synthetic drink that they hope will someday replace alcohol, the Daily Mail reported Jan. 6. Using chemicals related to those found in Valium, researchers at Imperial College, London created a colorless, tasteless liquid that reportedly produces mild intoxication, but won’t get users drunk regardless of how much they drink. Nutt said the substance could replace the alcohol in beer, wine and liquor and help reduce alcohol-related deaths. Researchers also are working on an antidote for the substance that users could take to „sober up“ at will. (Source: Join Together, 1/19/10)
