Science has proven it (obviously science has had a lot of free time lately)! Researchers claim that bacon sandwiches don’t actually soak up alcohol, but they do increase your metabolism, which in turn helps to knock out the after-effects of that crazy night out!
Additionally, bread is high in carbohydrates and bacon is full of proteins, which break down into amino acids- a chemical compound which is known to cure headaches. So while bingeing on alcohol depletes neurotransmitters, these amino acids help to clear one’s head.
It also doesn’t hurt that the taste and smell of a bacon sandwich provides comfort to the eater after a hectic, often regrettable night.
