Who paid for that study? Maybe, the beer industry?

Probably the only ethnic group in State College that doesn't drink that much.

An American study that only tested Chinese people????

I am not pouring my nice glass of Merlot down the drain because they could not find enough wine drinkers to add to this survey.

Brewer's Yeast is a good source of the B-vitamin group.

They can come and do the tests on me anytime, I'd only charge few pints.

We get Vegemite from scraping the inside of the barrels, no wonder its good for you.

I fed Brewers Yeast to my racehorses as a source of Vitamin B, ....trivia.

I realised I was in the Medical section, some interesting medical information came out this week in OZ.

Anyone who is an amateur Military Historian is aware the antiseptics available in WWI were minimal.

In the Australian services Condes Crystals, Hydrogen Peroxide, Sulfur and Aquaflavine were staples before Penicillin.

The rediscovery that Aquaflavine has given new hope to the treatment of the Super Bug and also some situations that help the immune system.

Sorry to anyone on this topic re beer drinkers, I should have possibly started a new topic.

Have another round and you wont be so offended.

Hi Tov!

That was interesting about Vegemite. Just a bit too salty for my taste.

Mind you, I wouldn't like to drink too much Acriflavine - I'd probably turn an orangish-yellow!

It was a staple lotion when I was a lad (1950s-60s) and is apparently still used in the medical community for some specific things (one of them being large burns, as it stops infection without affecting healing).

Yes I remember it too Drago, and I think that is where the miss naming comes from.

As an over the counter antiseptic it was called Aquaflavine and its medical name was Acriflavine, or also could have been as pronouncement issue.

Anything that can tackle the anti-B resistant bugs is a friend of mine.

I know mothers who dipped dummies in Vegemite, where some used honey, these Aussie babies didn't get much of a choice whether they liked it or not.

Ha Ha tough love.

I just looked - the two spellings seem to be pretty much used, maybe not equally, but both are common. I think Aquaflavine started as a 'brand name' and degenerated due to widespread use in the public domain.

The 'staples' were acriflavine (and the ointment, 'acriflex'); Gentian Violet; and Calomine lotion.

I hadn't realised the connection between Guinness and Aquaflavine - again, it's Brewer's Yeast and the B vitamins.
Acriflavine is a derivative of Riboflavine, Vitamin B₂. That's why B complex is orange (and smells).

So does Brewers Yeast, quite a distinctive smell.

the connection to Guiness means we can take it internally?

Gentian Violet, I remember that too, blast I must have got old.

I always take my Guinness internally (well, I did, when I used to drink).

I am not a beer drinker, but enjoy the occasional Stout, Guinness of course.

Are you on the wagon Drago?, bit sad coming on Christmas.

Not "on the wagon" - I just don't drink alcohol most of the time.
I was given a bottle of wine last Christmas and finally remembered to drink it somewhere around my birthday in May.

I like the taste of Southern Comfort, Glen . . . old whiskeys, good cognac, some beers. I don't ever become drunk.
The alcohol-free beer made by Guinness tastes better than most of the lagers in Britain, and any of the normal American ----.

Nothing sad about it at all.

Would that be American pisswater? You've HAD an American beer, eh, wot? ;-) Whistle

My preference is for about 4 oz. of a really divine artisinal, small brewery oatmeal stout. Yum! Good for breakfast with bread pudding...

This is my only now.

I've had two! I don't remember the makes - they were different, but both in cans and both bought at a "liquor store" by someone who just asked for "a six-pack" and pointed without specifying a name.

That sounds like "Old Tom" or Adnam's Brewery's "Tally-Ho".
Sometimes they are called 'barley wines' and sometimes 'strong ales' - there may be a technical difference. In Britain, that sort of ale is usually in ¹̸₃-pint bottles (a bit over 5 oz.) - malty and tasty.

Taurian by birthdate (the 16th) and - I'm told - Taurian by nature (down-to-Earth, patient, persistent, frugal, stubborn, slow-to-change) - definitely not schizoid (Gemini-twin).
