Should we be worried about powdered alcohol? Wired.com offers an opening salvo in the debate.
The reality, though, is that this powdered alcohol stuff really isn’t scary at all. The politicians, news organizations, and parent groups who are whipping up a frenzy over it are only flaunting an embarrassing lack of understanding of basic science. It’s not surprising, but it’s unfortunate. Personally, I’m looking forward to trying the real stuff once it hits the shelves this summer, unless the mob with pitchforks convinces the FDA that powdered alcohol is a witch.
