Question Can asparagus lessen a hangover?
From the "It's on the internet so it must be true!" file, sent via tweet:

BOOZE BLOCKER: Asparagus can reduce hangovers by almost doubling your ability to metabolize liquor. via @DaveZinczenko @stefanpinto

Turns out that there's actually scientific evidence to back that up. See The Scientifically Proven Natural Hangover Cure: Asparagus

From the article:
Quote:...scientists have found that eating asparagus before or after a night of drinking can help reign in the next day's headaches... In research to be published in the Journal of Food Science, Korean researchers found that extracts taken from the leaves and shoots of asparagus boosted levels of key enzymes that break down alcohol after heavy drinking.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
