Hangover Resistance

A proportion of adults are (or claim to be) 'immune' from developing hangovers after heavy alcohol consumption.

The underlying biochemical process(es) that may exempt some drinkers from hangovers is currently unknown.

In addition, estimates vary widely as to the prevalence of 'hangover resistance'.

A 2008 study (Curr Drug Abuse Rev. 1(1):42-6) from the US put the figure at around 23 percent.

A 2017 study (Addict Behav Rep. 9;5:14-18) from Canada put the figure at around 5 percent.
