Experts Critical of Purported Hangover Curative

/By

A new drink debuting in France claims to reduce drunkenness and lessen hangovers but has health experts wary, Fox News reported June 16. 

The drink, Outox, purports to “greatly speed up” the breakdown of alcohol in the blood, which the company says has been medically tested, though this has not been independently verified.

“If someone invented a product capable of really lowering the level of alcohol in the blood, he would deserve a Nobel prize,” said Alain Rigaud, president of the French anti-alcoholism group Association Nationale de Prevention en Alcoologie et Addictologie (ANPAA). 

Critics worry the drink could encourage people to drive drunk and consume more than they would otherwise. Versions of the drink have already been sold in Canada and other countries.
