Hi Laurent,

     Yes, and Germany has strict laws about brewing beer, hundreds
of years on the books.  Here in the US, there's no regulation and 
the beer is sludge.  Also, cheese, we have Velvita, not a top contenter 
for the cheese gourmet.  Then there's MacDonald's hamburgers....
well you have THAT as well.  Are they regulated differently in
Europe than the US?

     In the US the Food and Drug Administration exists to oversee
food products.  As long as the product states 'imitation' in
small print on the mayonaise, it passes inspection.
