The "foodbabe of http://foodbabe.com/ was concerned that there might be something relly nasty in beer, like gycol, so she started a petition to ask brewers to tell their customers what's in their product. Lots of people signed it and now brewers are "giving up their secrets".
So what's my problem? It is that apparently, 43k people think multi-billion dollar industries that live of the fact that only they know how to produce a particular drink would ever actually tell you the recipy.. They don't do that, end of story. Not for good ingredients, not for bad ones, and no, not even if they put glycol in there, the will never, ever tell you.
Yes they are putting up lists of ingredients, and guess what, it's the generic recipy for beer. Wow, I'd never have guessed.
So what has this incredibly naive women achieved? She's made 43k people believe that they have the power to do anything by singing a petition.
