Is Candy Food?

The Candy Critic has a sweet tooth; he reviews candy. His favorite:

Kit Kat is the cream of the crop when it comes to chocolate bars. In fact, it’s one of the best snacks all together. The flavor is perfect, a great blend of wafer filling and chocolate. The texture perfect, crispy with just the right size. Novelty wise, it’s the first and possibly only bar you can easily share with 3 friends. Perfection!

The site’s navigation is annoying at first; the top menu sets the menu on the left.

The Science of Lots of Stuff


Online since 1993, the Exploratorium was one of the first science museums to build a site on the World Wide Web. Included in the site are more than 15,000 Web pages and many sound and video files, exploring hundreds of different topics.

Their Science of Cooking site kept me interested for a long time. They have an interesting article about an organic egg farm.

Their Science of Music site was informative, too.

Beer Prevents Cancer in Rats

This was first reported two years ago, but I didn’t know it: Beer helps prevent cancer:

According to the data, tests showed that giving beer to a rat injected with carcinogens lowers the incidence of cancer by up to 50%.
With cancer-preventive foods such as spinach, carrots, parsley, broccoli and peanuts, you have to eat a lot of them to get any efficacy. With beer, you don’t have to drink so much (for cancer-prevention, that is).

I’m thirsty.
