BTW brewer's yeast and umami foods (shellfish) also raise uric acids. It's the brewer's yeast in beer that causes a beer belly. Beer drinkers have gone to drinking lite beers thinking that will keep them from getting fat since the calories are less then regular beer. How is that working out for them? As it turns out, even non-alcoholic beer cause a beer gut. Wine and liqueur don't have brewer's yeast so they don't cause a wine gut.
Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?
