Drink too much? Suffer. Period.

Beer before wine and you’ll feel fine; wine after liquor, never sicker.,

Uh, no.

At least not according to an excellent study recently published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

In this study, in the first week, 90 (presumably very happy and willing) volunteers were given set amounts of beer and wine to drink, some in one order, others in the reverse order, and a control group given just wine or beer by itself.

And to really nail down what happens, in the second week, the groups were reversed.

Shockingly, everyone who drank too much – no matter which alcohol, no matter what order – had similar levels of self-reported hangover the next day.
