Artificial intelligence can detect AML with high reliability Powis acknowledges that many people want to enjoy themselves at New Year, but says that nothing beats eating well and drinking sensibly when it comes to staying well and that a much better way to “cure” a hangover is to drink plenty of water and get some fresh air. Powis says, “Miracle hangover cures and quick fixes simply don’t exist, and anyone online who says they do is probably out to make a quick buck at your expense.” The drips are easily accessible at home, shopping centers and salons The drips used to be the preserve of expensive celebrity clinics, but now they are easily available, with some companies offering to deliver them to people at home, in large shopping centers or in high street salons. The drips are still costly, but some companies offer discounts for groups or multiple purchases. However, doctors maintain that, generally, hangovers cannot be "cured" and that nursing a hangover is more complicated than simply putting a needle in your arm. The risk of organ damage and infection Most hangover cure fads have been disproved by health experts who say exposing the liver and kidneys to excess levels of vitamins can place these organs under significant stress. The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) has prohibited companies from offering the drips to people if they have not screened liver and kidney function beforehand. Furthermore, IV vitamin therapy is always associated with a risk of infection, since a direct path into the bloodstream is created any time an IV line is inserted. Despite these dangers, the drips are being touted by celebrities and influencers, not only for curing hangovers but also for strengthening the immune system, burning fat, increasing energy, enhancing mood and decreasing stress and anxiety. However, there is no scientific basis for any of these claims and clinics have already been warned by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency that they must clearly advertise that the drips are intended for non-medicinal purposes only.
