    It's not true as far as I know. Also American beers contain lots of nasty substances...at least some of them do anyway.

    As I understand it, high formaldehyde content in beer in this part of the world is indeed an urban myth.

    A little update: I must have drank two liters of water today. I feel much better. I am going to chill out with the beer drinking a bit now. I should be ok.

    Re: Beer Drinking in LOS: Can it cause Gout?

    So out of all thai beers which has the greatest formaldehyde content?

    Chang? I am guessing.

    I get sore joints and muscles if I down too much beer over a period of a few days, lots of water helps and I take Alopurinol too what stops your body making so much uric acid, I'm only bloody 32!!!!

    At least you will all be well preserved.
    Faith, by itself, isn't a good enough reason to believe. Instead, a belief must be defensible through reason, logic, and evidence.
    The idea that faith is somehow justified by the fact that the beliefs cannot be proven is a truly Orwellian position to adopt - not to mention intellectually and ethically dangerous.

    There's no formaldehyde in beer. The post from Thaivisa is bilge.

    Formaldehyde in it's basic form is a gas. To make a solution they mix it with water and methanol to stop it polymerizing, this is called formalin, and is used to preserve biological samples.

    If any of this was in your beer you wouldn't be able to drink it. Forget the formaldehyde, the methanol would make you blind and sick.

    If your body starts telling you to drink less then the sensible option would be to listen to it, not try and get round it by taking something else to alleviate the symptoms. I say that in a kindly way as I am concerned about peoples health.
