Hangover is an illness, German court rules

Hangover is an illness, German court rules

A German Court has ruled that hangover is an illness, in a case against an unnamed company that sold “anti-hangover” products.

The firm was dragged to court in Frankfurt after being accused of making illegal health claims about its anti-hangover shots and drinks powders. 

In its ruling, the court stated that illnesses included even small or temporary changes to the body’s normal state. Food products, including drinks, cannot be marketed as being able to prevent or treat illnesses, it added.  

“Information about a food product cannot ascribe any properties for preventing, treating or healing a human illness or give the impression of such a property.

 By an illness, one should understand even small or temporary disruptions to the normal state or normal activity of the body” the superior regional court ruled.

The ruling is coming just days after the annual Oktoberfest beer festival kicked off in Munich.

  6. There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment?s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
