Dr. Kwang-il Kwon, who helped lead the study, said: "This could provide both clinical and real-life significance. The oxygen-enriched alcohol beverage would allow individuals to become sober faster, and reduce the side effects of acetaldehyde [an ethanol-produced compound believed to cause hangovers] without a significant difference in alcohol's effects. Furthermore, the reduced time to a lower BAC may reduce alcohol-related accidents." Fans of spirits may want to take note and consider adding some bubbles into their next vodka cocktail.
