Not all people agree as to what "quality" in life means.  To some it is health, others wealth, etc.  Personally I try to limit my poisons, but heck guys, alcohol will kill ya and that doesn't seem to stop us.

One other aspect is called "what's the point?" My idea of a perfectly health safe life would lead to that question

I completely agree with ya.  But although I still drink what I brew, I severely limit my consumption for health reasons.  Same with my intake of red meat (maybe once or twice a year), fat (I eat too much, no matter what), bread, pasta, and other things.  By enjoying them in limited quantities, I hope to be able to enjoy them longer.  I have heart disease and am pre diabetic, and those color every choice I make about what to put into my body.

There is one positive in this article, though; the author points folks away from the BMCs and toward micros and locally crafted beers... I'll give her that.

I wonder when these watchdogs will expose the toxic dangerous substance that are used in making pretzels, pretzel buns, and in Germany the Laugenbrot that I loved to eat.

Hint Laugenbrot=lye bread.

Or the ingredients in a smoked ham.  Or dry cured sausage.  Oh, the horrors!  :o

I can  see the headline now "On Pretzels - Author Says it is all a Lye!"

It's nice to start the day with a  little pun.   ;D

I don't know about you all, but I've been building a thirst ever since reading that fear mongering article.
