The Darker The Liquor, The More You’ll Be Sicker!

The darker the colour of your alcoholic drink, the more likely it is to give you a hangover.
A study conducted in the ‘Alcohol: Clinical And Experimental Research’, concluded that dark drinks contained more chemical by-products than lighter ones.
Researchers found that American whisky had 37 times more chemicals than vodka. These included the solvent acetone, oils and tannin. The harmful by products, called congeners, contribute to people feeling sick after a night of heavy drinking.
Professor Damaris Rohsenow, of Brown University, said, “While the alcohol alone is enough to make many people feel sick the next day, these toxic natural substances can add to the ill effects as our body reacts to them.”
