DETROIT -

One of the world's biggest questions may finally have an answer: How do you get rid of that nasty hangover?

Answer: Sprite.

The carbonated lemon-lime flavored soda showed a positive effect on alcohol-related symptoms in a recent study conducted by Chinese scientists.

Sprite can break down acetaldehyde, a metabolite of ethanol.

Some drinks, such as teas, were found to have the opposite effect and actually made things worse.
