NOW IT'S BEER'S TURN


We have all become used to the sight of health warnings on packets of cigarettes and on their advertising literature, remind us quite how bad the leading brands can be for our health and well-being. Now, according to Ananova, it's the turn of the Demon Drink. Newcastle Brown Ale and its Scottish Courage sister brands, including John Smith's bitter and Fosters and Coors, which brews Carling and Grolsch lagers, will introduce a similar policy next year and other brewers are expected to follow suit.

The IPKat notes that the major tobacco brands came through similar exercises surprisingly unscathed but wonders whether the fact that some brewers will be danger-labelling their brands while others won't is going to provide an effective control group for the purpose of comparing the long-term performance of brands that warn against brands that don't.

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
