A person who flies in airplanes has a 100% higher chance of dying in an airplane crash than those who never fly. Yet people still fly...

life is the number 1 cause of death...
“Here's to a long life, and a merry one;
a quick death, and an easy one;
a pretty girl, and an honest one;
a cold beer - and another one!”

Man, I sure ain't going to go out and get those jeans they're talking about.

How does denim increase your cancer risk by 700% anyhow?

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

A lot of beer drinkers I have known in my life have come and gone. Not one I ever knew had died of this malady.

I read that off msnbc this morning. More scare tactics,since they can't prove the correlation. Their research just suggested it. Maybe the wine & liquor guys are doing what the pork industry did a long time ago.?...Not to mention,they said dyecitles were dangerous,leading to this malady. They never mentioned that it's something we work to avoid.

I am concerned about this! Don't worry though. I will take one for the team. I will use myself as a guinea pig and drink 1-2 beers every night to see if I develope stomache cancer. If I die by any other means then you know this is BS. Until then please send me all your homebrews so I can start my test. Just a fyi... this could take some time, if you don't hear from me just assume I need more beer... you know... for the test

I like that the alcohol in by beer, but not in wine or liquor is what causes this. How is the same chemical all of a sudden different if the sugar comes from grape, grain or..wait, grain...?
