Another Reason to Have Strawberries and Champagne?

The summer fruit helps protect your stomach from alcohol

Research from Plos One indicates that strawberries can protect stomach lining that has been damaged by alcohol. The berries can also slow down the formation of ulcers and reduce the chances of other gastric illnesses.

This is great and everything, but unfortunately strawberries still don't help you get rid of hangovers (or even prevent you from getting wasted). So go ahead and pace yourself with those strawberries and champagne as you watch Pretty Woman.
