If you are like me and don't subscribe to the "hair of the dog" theory when it comes to treating a hangover, and you are not a big fan of tripe soup (what others call Menudo), here is a cure for that dreaded hangover you are sure to have sometime this weekend.

According to Time Magazinea new study out of China reveals the best cure for a hangover is the soda, Sprite.

Researchers discovered that the combination of carbonation and chemicals in Sprite breaks down acetaldehyde, the chemical compound that causes hangovers.

The study also found the worst thing for hangovers is herbal tea which actually makes the hangover worse.

So before you are nursing that hangover this weekend, remember to run to the local convenience store or grocery store and stock up on some Sprite.
