    i work in the beer industry and last week i was told that 95% of the asian beer out there has formaldehyde in it, a known cancer causing agent. i ran a search when i got home and there seems to be some truth behind this. the chinese state that they use it as a preservative...... and i really started to like tsingtao too.......

    All my cars,knives,guns,and beers are American made! Well except for a couple of guns, and one knife. But my beer will always be American, well maybe not always, but I know it won't be asian!

    I have to call B.S also. Asian beer are primary made with rice vrs barley/oats/wheat as what you find in the states or europe.

    I think you are confusing formaldehyde which is used in the Korean So-ju or Malko-li. Both of which have formaldehyde in them.

    Also for the records, most females beauty products have it also and I don't hear the "chicken little" sky is falling warning on that ;Q

    Those little deoderizer tabs in urinals contain formaldehyde.

    I know this for a fact because I used to work in environmental regulation and I had to respond to a big formaldehyde spill at a plant that manufactured those. ;g

    Since you work in the beer industry, I can see why you would not want anyone drinking anything but american beer.

    the movie good morning vietnam, also fueled this no doubt.

    remember when adrian croneur (sp.) went to jimmy 's bar and he told him they added just a touch of formaldehyde just for flavor...!

    me no worry ....I'll just keep doing budweiser and stay safe.
