Howstuffworks "How Hangovers Work"

Here's a site I can relate to with both sides of my brain.
How Stuff Works is just what it sounds like, explanations of the workings of lots of stuff. But then I notice this article: "How Hangovers Work"

A related link from the above article:
Hangover products reviewed.

What I get from all this is, the best cure is prevention.

3> Take aspirin, not acetaminophen.
4> Hangover pills containing charcoal do help.
