Why do we get hangovers? - Explained!

Brit Lab explains hangovers happen because first, alcohol makes us pee more and become dehydrated. Then, its breakdown in the body releases nasty things like acetaldehyde and cytokines, which can be responsible for our general feelings of nausea and headaches. Plus, since the liver is busy processing the alcohol, it can’t produce as much blood sugar during your slumber. As a result, you wake up feeling tired, irritable, and generally feeling like death.
