Scientist finds possible hangover cure

Before you go to those Christmas parties and end up tying one on: A British researcher says a cure for the hangover is closer than we think.

Professor David Nutt told The Guardian newspaper that he's identified compounds that can reverse the effects of alcohol.

As an experiment, Nutt says he had a few drinks and tested the compound on himself. He says he had no impairments whatsoever.

The professor says he'd like to create the antidote as a drink, possibly a healthy cocktail.

Now, he's just looking for funding to test and market the product.
