Be careful ladies and gentlemen, your beer may give you alzheimers.

Lesson - drop the "I can't believe it's not butter" and make your best beer!

It's okay. I only make my diacetyl-bomb beers in an aluminum boil kettle.

I really doubt that it's going to affect us as much the...wait, what was I talking about, and who the hell are you? :)

I guess the bonus of being an alzheimers ridden brewer is that you'll constantly be brewing. It's like Groundhog Day with brewing

Correlation != Causation

+1

Remember a while back they noticed a correlation between aluminum and Alzheimers that turned out to be BS

Yeah, sounds like you have to already have it.

At that point you are in trouble anyways.

Uh huh. And I'll bet the Journal's editors and the researchers never thought of that. This is one of the most frequently employed glib dismissals of scientific work by the public. Here's the important language: "So they tested whether DA also could clump those proteins. DA did increase the level of beta-amyloid clumping." So they went beyond simply observing a correlation.

I'm not saying the results are definitive and this report isn't either. But to glibly dismiss it by the dull old saw "Correlation does not imply causation" suggests a fundamental suspicion of science in general.
