Results of research into the nausea many people feel when watching the news, has been published today.

"When the audience feels uneasiness or nervousness while watching news broadcasts, especially of horrorific plane crashes and nails across the blackboard, which Al Gore uses to make his audience cringe during global warming scenes, it may be due to the high and irregular frequency of the newscasters' picking up a trash can and puking their guts out," says Pukamologist Tyoto Subota of the Tao University School of Medicine in Nagasaki, Japan.

He says his studies show the typical newscaster pukes three times as much as an average person, which might convey a sense of hangovers.
