#1 Myth: You Get A Beer Gut From Beer Truth: While beer has a lot of calories, chances are you not only have beer gut, but you have cheeseburger gut, bacon gut, and fries gut. Everything combined is why you have a tire around your waist. #2 Myth: Absinthe Makes You Hallucinate Truth: Thujone is the chemical responsible for hallucinations and is toxic in large amounts, however there are only trace amounts found in Absinthe. The myth may have started when Absinthe was a cheap drink that heavy drinkers pounded and then claimed to have hallucinated, when they were just completely intoxicated... or maybe the tiny traces of thujone added up... or both. #3\u00a0Myth: A Nightcap Helps You Sleep Truth: For the first half of the night, it's true, you'll sleep like a baby as your body metabolizes the booze, but once it's done, watch out, you will be wide awake and feeling like crap. #4\u00a0Myth: There Isn't A Hangover Cure Truth: There is a miraculous cure in the bacon sandwich. The bread soaks up the alcohol while the bacon replaces lost salt and is loaded with protein and amino acids to nurse you back to health.
