Default Bacon sandwiches cure a hangover???

A friend of mine swears by this remedy for curing a hangover . I've heard of hangover being caused by a deficiency of vitamin B complex, however what does bacon have to do with that? If any one has tried this or has any understanding of the science to prove or discredit it, please weigh in on the discussion.

I'm not the expert on that, but I know that I like greasy foods when I'm hungover. Maybe that has something to do with it

It's the salt. You sweat and pee out a lot of nutrients when drunk, so your body craves what it's missing.

Bacon cheeseburger and a large gatoraid will kill just about any hangover.

The gatoraid is for dehydration. 2/3 of a hangover is from being dehydrated.

Excedrin, water, greasy foods and about an hour nap.

If necessary, I will dedicate my life to science of greasy foods combating hangovers.

On second thought, that might have already happened...

+1.

Many large Gatorades, maybe.

I dig potassium pills for curative powers, too.
