Totally off tangent - thought your posting was hilarious. Nice to have a laugh amongst all the heavy stuff. :)

(BTW - No wonder American beer is safe - it's just like that joke about having sex in a canoe.)

> I can second the miso soup caution: I had probably my worst "documented" (in that I recorded my b.p. some hours after eating it, and wrote it down in a log for posterity) hypertensive reaction to a food after consumption of miso: 186/104. I probably should have gone to the ER, but didn't. Anyway, I must mention that this was the first course of a large sushi and sashimi dinner, during which which a fair amount of soy sauce (well, more of a thermonuclear soy-wasabi "paste" of my own concoction that I am wont to consume) was used. However, I don't often take miso (it had been well over a year before that particular night since my last bowl), while I do often gobble sushi with the aforementioned condiments, so I atribute the reaction to the miso, at least in large part.

> I have yet to have a bad reaction to a bottled beer. On a somewhat more tentative note, I have yet to have a bad reaction to a draft/tap beer, though I have not been too adventurous in this area. The only tap beers I have tried have been of the Cheap American variety (Bud, Miller, etc.), in small amounts (no more than a pint over the course of an evening - I was excoriated once for this with a "nurse it, baby!"). I did try a somewhat-less-skunky variety of tap beer once, Sam Adams, and also had no problem. After a while I decided this was a bit like playing Russian Roulette, and quit consuming tap beer. I do not recommend it. These are just my experiences.

> One of the oddest reactions I have had, though, in retrospect, it shouldn't have been that suprising, was to Cliff Bars and Power Bars, those horrible, sawdust-emulsified high-energy bars outdoors buffs consume with giant volumes of water. They have soy extracts in them (as do many others of the "energy bar" variety), and I believe this was the source of the trouble. Another weird thing was a breakfast smoothie mix (the brand name escapes me, though I do remember it was strawberry-flavored) which, sure enough, had soy protein in it. This I found that out after developing a splitting headache and then running to the container to peruse the ingredients. My poor girlfriend thought she had killed me, but in the end I was OK. I pretended to have siezures for a couple days, which she did not find amusing, but no permanent damage.

> In general, I might avoid all those meal-in-a-can-for-granola-heads-style "energy" foods, anything with soy or other protein extracts in them. I've had bad experiences with every one I've tried which fit the above criterion.
