Google Lifts the Lid on Hangover Cures

Google search has revealed a silly season favourite with the release of the Top Ten Hang Over Cures, following the festive Christmas season.

Taking out the top spot for ‘best hangover cure’ show confirm that unorthodox methods of getting rid of a hangover are still as popular as ever, including the ‘burnt toast cure’.

‘Marmite beer cure’ came in tenth behind searches including ‘alcohol recovery diet’, ‘green tea hangover’ and ‘hangover cure ginger’.

When it comes to comparing New Zealand and Australia however, the two top ten lists have only two searches in common.
