Researchers at Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CISRO), the Australian government's scientific research organization, found that test subjects who consumed 220mL (just under 1 cup) of Asian pear juice before drinking alcohol had fewer and/or diminished hangover symptoms the next day.
