Why is it the good times need to end with a bad time….on the toilet?
Thrillist dived into the science of poop to find out why drinking alcohol leads to one heck of a hangover on the toilet the next day.
Thrillist talked with Dr, Kathlynn Caguiat who says, “Alcohol can increase gut motility and it doesn’t get broken down before it reaches the colon, where bacteria feast on these, resulting in bloating and diarrhea.”

“Food acts as a protective mechanism by slowing the process of gastric emptying.” Gastric emptying? Whoa….
