Dangerous foods round-up

Playing follow-up this morning. Just noticed a couple of papers that deal with topics we’ve been considering here over the past couple of weeks. Remember the post about sorghum beer in Africa from a few days back? Well, it turns out it’s not all good news. There had to be a catch, right? And, following our discussion of a paper on the chemical ecology of cassava, there’s a vivid reminder of why detoxifying those tubers is still so important in some parts of Africa. ((BTW, via a comment by Dirk on the original cassava post, I have learned of the existence of a Cassava Cyanide Diseases and Neurolathyrism Network (CCDNN). Thanks, Dirk.))
