Science is one step closer to hangover-free booze (no, really)

With Christmas just around the corner, it's safe to say that there'll be a few sore heads knocking around over the next few weeks.

Between office parties and catch-ups with friends, the festive season can leave even the most responsible of drinkers feeling a little worse for wear.

However, that could all be about to change because according to an Imperial College professor, hangover-free alcohol could be a reality in as little as 10 years.

Speaking to The International Business Times UK, Professor David Nutt predicted that the next generation wouldn't drink booze as we know them. 

“In another 10 or 20 years, Western societies won’t drink alcohol except on rare occasions,” he said.

Instead, they will drink a synthetic alternative with fewer harmful side-effects.

Apparently it'll be called 'alcosynth' and it's what we'll on be drinking in 2028.

“Alcosynth will become the preferred drink, in the same way that I can see — almost within a decade now in the Western world — tobacco and cigarettes will disappear as they’re replaced by electronic cigarettes.”

Sounds good to us!
