Default Diacetyl causes cancer?

http://www.wcvb.com/health/Researche...j/-/index.html

Is this is same diacetyl that can be present in home brewed beer?

I meant to say causes Alzheimers (d'oh!).

Yes it's the same, but I would say that they levels are far beyond what is in our beer. Our beer would be undrinkable if it had that much

We have already been discussing it in this thread for over a week.... Never has a diacetyl rest been so important
