Why hangovers can't be cured

We all know how we're going to feel next Tuesday. (Hey, I have to work next Tuesday!) Newsweek explains how we get into that unpleasant state, and why abstinence (yeah, right) is the only way around it.

While hangovers have plagued revelers since early hominids kicked back with some date-palm wine, science still doesn't have a good understanding of how your I-love-everybody yuletide cheer turns into such a biological bah-humbug.
